Course 'Design and Organisation of Autonomous Systems'
This is the information of year 2008
The project-sites of the previous years
are 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007.
The objective of the course 'Design and Organisation of Autonomous Systems' are
- To know the concepts that are important in the design of
Intelligent Autonomous Systems.
- To understand the problems that are to be solved.
- To identify the solutions found.
- To create a reference framework to situate future developments.
At the first day, we will give a small workshop with some background of the research that is related to the assignments. For a month,
students will work in small groups on a specific project assignment on one of our laboratory systems, closely supervised by one of our senior researchers.
The assignment will be a case study in designing and integrating a new algorithm in an existing autonomous system. During the project, the following aspects are important:
- Perform a literature study to get acquinted with the existing autonomous system and the state-of-the-art on the subject of the new algorithm.
- Make a clear assignment of tasks to the members of the team.
- Document the technical progress during the project.
- Finalize the project with an article and review the articles of the others.
- Present the results of the project on a mini-conference with external invites.
In 2008, we have the following assignments:
- Map exploration with a AirRobot

- Exploiting time-coherences
for autonomous vehicle vision tasks
