Overview

The programme

In Robotics - Capstone Course offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Pennsylvania, we will give you a chance to implement a solution for a real world problem based on the content you learnt from the courses  in your robotics specialization. It  will also give you a chance to use mathematical and programming methods that researchers use in robotics labs. 

You will choose from two tracks - In the simulation track, you will use Matlab to simulate a mobile inverted pendulum or MIP. The material required for this capstone track is based on courses in mobility, aerial robotics, and estimation. In the hardware track  you will need to purchase and assemble a rover kit, a raspberry pi, a pi camera, and IMU to allow your rover to navigate autonomously through your own environment

Hands-on programming experience will demonstrate that you have acquired the foundations of robot movement, planning, and perception, and that you are able to translate them to a variety of practical applications in real world problems.  Completion of the capstone will better prepare you to enter the field of Robotics as well as an expansive and growing number of other career paths where robots are changing the landscape of nearly every industry.
