In this course, you will learn relevant fundamentals of human motor performance, perception, and cognition that inform effective interaction design. You will use these models of how people work to design more effective input and interaction techniques. You’ll apply these to both traditional graphic and gestural interfaces.

How can robots perceive the world and their own movements so that they accomplish navigation and manipulation tasks? In this module, we will study how images and videos acquired by cameras mounted on robots are transformed into representations like features and optical flow. Such 2D representations allow us then to extract 3D information about where the camera is and in which direction the robot moves. You will come to understand how grasping objects is facilitated by the computation of 3D posing of objects and navigation can be accomplished by visual odometry and landmark-based localization.

La produzione di questo MOOC fa capo al Corso di Disegno edile, afferente alla facoltà di Ingegneria edile dell'Università Federico II di Napoli. Durante le lezioni, particolarmente indicate per coloro che abbiano conoscenze dei fondamenti della geometria proiettiva e del metodo delle proiezioni ortogonali, si affronterà la questione della rappresentazione delle ombre. Saranno affrontati e risolti alcuni problemi grafici legati a questo tipo di rappresentazione, attraverso l'utilizzo di numerosi esempi interattivi che, in maniera evidente, illustreranno le soluzioni risultanti dall'applicazione delle regole.

Basic concepts and algorithms for locomotion, perception, and intelligent navigation. Robots are rapidly evolving from factory workhorses, which are physically bound to their work-cells, to increasingly complex machines capable of performing challenging tasks in our daily environment. The objective of this course is to provide the basic concepts and algorithms required to develop mobile robots that act autonomously in complex environments.
