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!

Well structured and reasonably challenging. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning to pursue graduate studies in robotics!

by Abizer P


It was a pretty informative Course. It did great job in introducing essentials. Just hope that the videos were more insightful

by Aditya H


Some tutorials provided for instructing about how to use Matlab would have been great.Otherwise everything else was great.

by Saimon S


The Course is good. Delivered basic knowledge of robotics clearly. But there are still some scopes need to be improved.

by Mayur


This Course was not fully explained in the videos, one has to refer a book while following the course material

by Alexandr Z


A good course , but i would like more examples of every task with specific parameters not variables

by Rakesh S


It was an amazing experience to learn robotics this course teaches lots of new things.

Exceptionally good course.Video content can be increased instead of reading the book.

by Jorge I P B


I​t was good, The last part was not very clear. There were some missing concepts

by Sandhya V


The videos really need to be more detailed, especially from Week 3 onwards.

by Clayder A G C


Very useful. I liked the practical use of maths oriented to robotics.



Great course ! Everything explained in detail

by KwangHoe K


Good for a Robotics Software Engineer

by Luming


good!hope more example

by Ayush K P


It is the best course to start the career in the field of robotics.All the explanation related to the terms and topics in the video is very short.It gives the theory part in a good way. But there is no numerical problem, which is tough to understand it and how to implement it.If this platform will provide the answer key of book ,it will be very helpful for all the user to match their answer(Only answer Key of the all chapters).

by Nikhil B


This course is great for building the foundations of robot motion. The assignments are good and the flow of the course is nice too. However, course and the book lacks the practice problems. Sure there are exercises at the end of each chapter in the book but it would have been nice to see some solved problems which would help clear the concepts further.

Clear description and detailed analysis not available in the 4th week. Making it quite cumbersome process to realize the mistakes done in answering the questions (especially last quiz of 4th week)

by Sahil G


this course is good for new learners but the programming part is not detailed explained in video lectures and the questions are too tough to be solved. other then , interesting course .



certain things were hard to grasp expecting more detailed explanations in an easier language
