Overview

Control of Mobile Robots is a course that focuses on the application of modern control theory to the problem of making robots move around in safe and effective ways. The structure of this class is somewhat unusual since it involves many moving parts - to do robotics right, one has to go from basic theory all the way to an actual robot moving around in the real world, which is the challenge we have set out to address through the different pieces in the course.

I just started, but so far it is quite interesting. I've seen several online courses and this one is well done - good quality video and audio, average and stable pace, nice touches like TA mini lectures to help with quizzes. The lectures include enough details to fully explain the subject, but not too much to become boring. The professor's presentation style is cool too!

Excellent course on the basics of control systems. Despite taking requisite classes for my undergrad degree, I can now say I understand control systems. Prof. Egerstedt is a great teacher who explains things in the correct order. The quizes are not too difficult, but do force you to understand the material.

Very good mix of theory and practice. A simulator lets you test out the ideas. Be prepared for some linear algebra in the theory side of the course.

If you want to take it further there are optional instructions on building a real robot.
