WWW Autonomous Robotics is a computer engineering practicum offered entirely via the Internet. The course adopts a low threshold, no ceiling philosophy. This means that the course is designed to be inclusive of students with limited formal training while still providing significant challenges for those with greater preparation and/or motivation. Students will be required to create control programs for a mobile autonomous robot. In each course unit, the problems posed will become increasingly more challenging. Coaching, advise, and instruction are done online via chat interfaces. Student code is tested first in a simulator that we provide and then on a real robot whose activity can be monitored remotely via a web cam.
