Unit 4: Probability and Planning

« Previous | Next »

After a brief introduction to probability theory and computational search strategies, this unit focuses on modeling uncertainty and making robust plans. Robotic applications include mapping an unknown space, determining one’s location in a known space, and plotting a route through a maze.

 Two images representing how the robot navigates through a maze.

Topics Bayes’ theorem, search strategies
Lab Exercises

Mapping: drive robot around unknown space and make map

Localization: give robot map and ask it to find where it is

Planning: plot a route to a goal in a maze

Theme robust design in the face of uncertainty
