Autonomous Navigation for Flying Robots is a free online course conducted by the Technische Universität München (TUM), a German University.
About the course
In this course, students shall learn how to infer the position of the quadrotor from its sensor readings and how to navigate it along a trajectory. Students shall be introduced to the basic concepts for autonomous navigation for quadrotors. The following topics will be covered:
- 3D geometry,
- probabilistic state estimation,
- visual odometry, SLAM, 3D mapping,
- linear control.
This course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering. This course has been offered by TUM for the first time in summer term 2014 on EdX with more than 20.000 registered students of which 1400 passed examination. The MOOC is based on the previous TUM lecture "Visual Navigation for Flying Robots" which received the TUM TeachInf best lecture award in 2012 and 2013.
Course Begins: May 5, 2015
Course Length: 8 weeks
