Peter Corke

By day I’m a professor at Queensland University of Technology. My interests include robotics, computer vision, embedded systems, control and networking. I’ve worked on robotic systems for mining, aerial and underwater applications.
By night I maintain two open-source toolboxes, one for robotics and one for vision, and have just finished writing a book on robotics, vision & control which will be published September 2011.

Introducing Robotics: Build a Robot Arm (FutureLearn)

Design, build and program a simple robot and share it with other learners. Here’s your chance to build a simple robot. Robotics is all about integrating hardware and software. In this course, you’ll design, build and program a simple robot, with at least two joints, that can carry a [...]

Introducing Robotics: Making Robots Move (FutureLearn)

The world needs people who understand how to get robots moving. Making robots move requires both mathematical knowledge and programming skills. We begin with the problem of describing where things are in the world. Starting simply, we consider objects in a two-dimensional plane, exploring the concepts of position, pose, [...]

Introducing Robotics: Robotics and Society (FutureLearn)

How do you feel about robots? Learn how robotics is used today and explore how it might help solve the big issues of our time. Once only found in fiction, robots are being applied in an increasing array of ways in society, from mechanisation of industrial tasks to exploring [...]

Robotic Vision: Making Robots See (FutureLearn)

How does my robot see? Get involved in a vision project by writing the code for a complete vision system. Programming a computer to see requires knowing the principles of vision, and mathematical and programming skills.

Robotic Vision: Processing Images (FutureLearn)

How do computers process images? Learn about image processing and image features, and how robots can be programmed to see. Programming a robot to see requires knowing the principles of vision, mathematical knowledge and programming skills. We explore how computers process images, learning the operations required to process an [...]

Robotic Vision: Principles of Vision (FutureLearn)

What is vision? Learn the basics of human and robot vision, the concept of perspective and the constituent parts of an image. Discover the principles of vision and how robots can be programmed to see.
