ノースウェスタン大学(Northwestern University) による Modern Robotics, Course 1: Foundations of Robot Motion の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Do you want to know how robots work? Are you interested in robotics as a career? Are you willing to invest the effort to learn fundamental mathematical modeling techniques that are used in all subfields of robotics? If so, then the "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" specialization may be for you. This specialization, consisting of six short courses, is serious preparation for serious students who hope to work in the field of robotics or to undertake advanced study. It is not a sampler. In Course 1 of the specialization, Foundations of Robot Motion, you will learn fundamental material regarding robot configurations, for both serial robot mechanisms and robots with closed chains. You will learn about configuration space (C-space), degrees of freedom, C-space topology, implicit and explicit representations of configurations, and holonomic and nonholonomic constraints. You will also learn how to represent spatial velocities and forces as twists and wrenches. This material is at the core of the study of anything that moves (e.g., robots). This course follows the textbook "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" (Lynch and Park, Cambridge University Press 2017). You can purchase the book or use the free preprint pdf. You will build on a library of robotics software in the language of your choice (among Python, Mathematica, and MATLAB) and use the free cross-platform robot simulator V-REP, which allows you to work with state-of-the-art robots in the comfort of your own home and with zero financial investment....




Very Engineering driven course and you better be ready for the calculations... Made for Engineers.

Coming from an Electrical/Electronic background it was really intuitive. I plan on continuing...



This is the place to start your journey into robotics. But stick to the entire 6 courses. This course is about laying out the basics so don't expect making robots straightaway. All the best!

Curso muy completo! Lo que mas me gusto fue el capitulo 3 de las rotaciones. Sin embargo si no tienes cursos realizados de fisica vectorial y algebra lineal se te hara dificil.

by Sachin P


Explains the basics of Robot Motion in a clear and effective manner. Discussion prompts are especially fantastic to help students reflect on the course content by themselves.

by David L L C


Un excelente curso, altamente recomendado, me ayudó a recordar cosas básicas del algebra lineal que vi hace unos años atrás y a enfocarlo a un escenario completamente nuevo.

by Muhammad T


Very well structured and amazing team of tutors! Loved the way the course was designed and carried out! Much thanks to Coursera and Professor Kevin Lynch! Thank you!

Excellent introduction to the course, for someone who has been 4 years out of academic life I found it challenging yet satisfying to retake linear algebra concepts

by Abdelrahman S S E


An excellent introduction to Screw theory and to Parallel manipulators in general for any one who wants to start developing or working on closed chain robots.

by Lucas H W


It was a great course. Easy to get started. The material is not that simple though. Make sure you know your linear algebra and geometry well before starting.

by Jose A


It's a very complete course for the fundamentals of machine motion, you need mathematical concepts in linear algebra and basic physics for the excercises.

by Riley C Y


This course really challenges you and is a nice introduction to certain software often used in robotics. Project isn't too difficult and is doable.

by Jérôme L


I learned a lot and quickly thanks to professor Kevin Lynch . This is the beginning, don't expect to program robots yet, follow the full 6 courses

by Shreya L


This was a very helpful course. I would like to thank Coursera for this highly detailed course. Looking forward to do similar other courses here!

by ricardo p


The course looks very good, but it is a pity that they do not have the possibility of taking it in other languages such as Spanish, for example

by Allen F C


B​est introduction to the roattion and transoformations that I have come across. highly recommended for robotics and Perception enthusiasts.

by Konrad F


I liked the course a lot. Reading the boo carefully will help a lot. Further examples are in the Appendix and that gives a solid background.

by sridath k


I think building the foundation strong is very much required and the planning of starting it with basic concept of D.O.F could greatly help.

by Mahdi B G


Thank you for your awesome course. I personally recommend you to solve more example to make courses more practical and comprehensive

by William M


Thorough introduction to robotics. Well laid out. Videos complement the book well but the book (provided as an ebook) is essential.

by mayur t


Excellent teaching!I recommend watching 'Essence of Linear Algebra' series by '3Blue1Brown' on YouTube before starting this course.

by Neyvin D L


Worth every penny. The instructor explains the concepts very well and the materials and quizzes really help the concepts stick.

by Thomas S


It takes a fair bit of work and there are a lot of details, but the class is very enjoyable and well worth the time to take it

by Ayush G


A relatively harder course but completely worth it. Have patience, write and learn, and you will be able to complete it.



This course would be perfect if only they could improve forum discussions and response. Everything else was wonderful.

by Eduardo L


Great course, really informative. Great as a basis for robotics. The course material is very complete and informative.

by Willian C


Pienso que este curso es muy acertivo en cuestiones de enseñanza básica...... en lo personal me ha servido mucho.

by Dhrumil P


The best part was conceptual questions after every video which made sure that we understood each part properly.
