About

In this 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.

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • Week 1 - Welcome to Robotics Capstone! This week you will choose between two tracks available to you for your capstone. Please make sure you watch the videos carefully to make the choice. In the MIP track, you will learn how to use MATLAB (your numerical tool for this capstone track) to simulate dynamical systems numerically.In the AR track, you will learn to use the rover simulator, purchase the kit and implement Dijkstra's algorithm in python.
  • Week 2: Lesson Choices - Please make sure you complete the soldering and flashing before assembly.
