I’m deeply interested in robotics and the intersection of engineering (software, mechanical, electrical) and design.
I’ve created an online curriculum for myself and I’ve enjoyed taking classes on Coursera or FutureLearn. I plan on completing the Coursera Robotics specialization offered by Penn.
Robotics: Aerial Robotics by University of Pennsylvania on Coursera. Certificate earned on Wednesday, July 5, 2017.
Introducing Robotics: Robotics and Society by Queensland University of Technology on FutureLearn. Certificate earned on May 13, 2017.
I have been enjoying developing new skills and learning new things in the process.
I had never used Matlab before but both the Aerial Robotics and the Computational Motion Planning courses relied heavily on it. It was a fun thing to learn.
I was exposed briefly to generic algorithms in engineering school, but I was glad to visit new ones in the Computational Motion Planning course.
I have yet to dive deeply into ROS (something I plan on doing after reaching a good level of proficiency in Python) but I’ve started experimenting with it through a TurtleBot3.
I’ve been blogging about my learning and experimenting.
