Content

Autonomous mobile robots (AMR) can be defined as robots able to navigate through the environment in an autonomous way while performing goal-oriented tasks. They can be classified arroding to their operational environment into unmanned groud vehicled (UGVs), unmanned water vehicles (UWVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

In the context of the lecture Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR), basic techniques and methods are introduced.

Starting with the definition, applications, and the history of AMR, important areas like

  • Sensor Systems
  • Feature Extraction and Object Recognition
  • Modelling
  • Localization
  • Mapping
  • Navigation
  • Control Architectures

are covered. Although this lecture focuses on UGVs, most methods can also be transferred to other types of AMRs.

Requirement

Knowledge of the lecture Foundations of Robotics (INF-60-02-V-4)

 

Corrections as discussed in available in errata slides

Literature

Supporting literature will be given during the lecture and exercises.
