Use eFIRE, a coaching mindset and methodology, to make better leadership decisions in the face of a complex and challenging world. In today’s complex and uncertain world, how can you use coaching and mentoring to untangle messy problems and find solutions that will help you – and your staff [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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.
Data visualisation is vital in bridging the gap between data and decisions. Discover the methods, tools and processes involved. Data visualisation is an important visual method for effective communication and analysing large datasets. Through data visualisations we are able to draw conclusions from data that sometimes are not immediately [...]
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 [...]
