WASP Autonomous Systems 1 VT18

Congratulations to all that passed Autonomous Systems I. You probably want to go to the second course now.


Autonomous Systems I is a WASP core course whose purpose is to give a broad understanding of the wide area of autonomous systems and the foundational knowledge in the topic areas required to understand and develop autonomous systems. It is the first of two 6hp courses.

This course is divided into two modules :

  1. Sensing and Perception
  2. Control and Decision making


Taking part in the course

Course setup

Each of the two modules consists of three phases. There is a preparation phase where you read up on the topics of the module and do some preparatory assignments. During this phase you will work on your own and have meetings with students from your local university. It is important that time is allocated for this. After this, follows a two day meeting where everyone in the course gets together in one location and we have presentations related to the topics and hands-on sessions to help set up for the examination that follows in the third step. The presentations will assume that you have already studied the material. The third phase is the examination. You will work individually and in pairs here. Also in this phase there will be local sessions. 

There are many students taking the course so we will have to be quite strict with the deadlines. Make sure to allocate time for the course. 

Course material

The material for the course is presented under the item "Modules" in the left hand side menu. The material and information to the two modules follows. 


The students are expected to have a background in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering or similar. The students are expected to have the foundational mathematics found in most engineering programs and basic programming skills.
