The aim of the course is to present and study the mechanisms by which a robotic system can acquire an understanding of its environment and use it to navigate autonomously in it. In this context, topics such as, types and principles of sensor operation, spatial mapping, position self-awareness, path design, obstacle detection and avoidance, signaling and topological navigation are presented and studied. The course includes study and elaboration of extensive programming work based on a modern scientific publication.
