ME3420 Computational Foundations for Robotics

This course is a hands-on introduction to the foundational computational concepts and development practices employed in the engineering of robotics and autonomous systems. Topics include both general purpose programming and intermediate techniques specific to robotics, e.g., component-based development, event-based programming, cyber-physical interface, real-time execution, etc.  Students successfully completing the class will have the computational understanding and skills to be successful in future engineering coursework at NPS.  Because the basic programming review is accelerated, in order to succeed in the course, students should have previously learned a procedural programming language.
