The objective of the course 'Design and Organisation of Autonomous Systems' are


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, the 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.

Project assignment

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:


In 2009, we have four assignments:
