Autonomous Robots: Path Planning

via Udemy


Use A* Search (A-star Search) to find a route between any two locations in New York City, just like Google Maps does!

What you'll learn:
  • Enough about A* Search (A-star) and Path Planning to defend it in an interview
  • General robotics systems knowledge
  • Python and its usefulness in robotics

Ever Wondered How Google Maps Calculates the Route To Your Destination? Learn How To Design A Path Planning System of Your Own!

Knowing how to plan a path between your current location and your goal is an essential skill whether its for a self-driving car / autonomous vehicle, a roomba, or even an app like Uber, Waze, or Google Maps.

In this course you won't just learn concepts but will also have a chance to implement, test, and a see the results of your work in real time. For the final project of this course you will need to plan a path between any two locations in New York City. Like Frank Sinatra says, if you can plan a path there, you can plan one anywhere!

With this course, you can level up your knowledge, add an additional skill to your robotics arsenal, and do it all through a program that feels more like a game than it does a class.

This course will teach the A* search algorithm, which is a fundamental robotics algorithm. This algorithm is so fundamental it was even used on the very first mobile robot, Shakey the Robot.
