About

How can robots perceive the world and their own movements so that they accomplish navigation and manipulation tasks?  

In this Robotics - Perception offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Pennsylvania, we will study how images and videos acquired by cameras mounted on robots are transformed into representations like features and optical flow.  Such 2D representations allow us then to extract 3D information about where the camera is and in which direction the robot moves.  

You will come to understand how grasping objects is facilitated by the computation of 3D posing of objects and navigation can be accomplished by visual odometry and landmark-based localization.
