Course Description

How can we create agile micro aerial vehicles that are able to operate autonomously in cluttered indoor and outdoor environments? You will gain an introduction to the mechanics of flight and the design of quadrotor flying robots and will be able to develop dynamic models, derive controllers, and synthesize planners for operating in three dimensional environments. You will be exposed to the challenges of using noisy sensors for localization and maneuvering in complex, three-dimensional environments. Finally, you will gain insights through seeing real world examples of the possible applications and challenges for the rapidly-growing drone industry. Mathematical prerequisites: Students taking this course are expected to have some familiarity with linear algebra, single variable calculus, and differential equations. Programming prerequisites: Some experience programming with MATLAB or Octave is recommended (we will use MATLAB in thi...

The course provides no information regarding prerequisites like linear algebra and advanced calculus. It is very difficult to get acquainted with the topics if you want to finish the course on time, given its complexity. Although topics are laid out well, a few more pointers and redirection to reference material to read up on would have been helpful. If I want to pursue this field further I have to start all over again after the course.

According to my experience of robotics course this course very concept builder of quadrotors.Everyone should try it to pass this course.This course also has matlab programmes which will assist you throughout the courses by instructors.you will get very good as my personal experience tells.very very useful for beginners and intermediater.Should try this course or I should say must go through the syllabus which will give the glance of this course which is very very helpful for prequisite

The course was misleading. It didn't list any pre-reqs when linear algebra and calculus 2 (or 3) were required. I like that you got a 60 day license for matlab. And some of the videos were good. Some were math heavy. There were a number of complaints in the forum that the quizes were disconnected from the lectures and you got no clues as to whether you were right or wrong. Some of the "optional" support materials were necessary to do the programming assignment. I wound up dropping the class week 4 as I didn't have time to learn enough calculus to figure out the assignment. I don't mind the class was hard. I mind they didn't advertise it properly.
