Course history

Introduction

The course provides an arena where students can learn about specific technologies and methods that are relevant for applications in robotics and control. These themes can be varied from artificial intelligence methods for robotics and control, Internet of Things and sensor network systems, autonomous  and distributed systems, embedded systems, industrial process control, and other special subjects within robotics and control.

The first part of the course is organised as a series of lectures and seminars. The second part of the course is a practical project. The course is completed by the students submitting a report and giving a presentation of their work.

Recommended preliminary courses

Robotics and Control courses:

  • ACIT4810 - Advanced Methods in Modelling, Simulation, and Control

  • ACIT4820 - Applied Robotics and Autonomous Systems

Required preliminary courses

No formal requirements over and above the admission requirements. 

Learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the course, the student:

Knowledge

  • has advanced knowledge within a sub-area of robotics and control.
  • has knowledge about the process of planning and conducting a project.

Skills

  • can apply the theoretical knowledge and research-based methodologies into a practical problem.
  • can propose a detailed project plan.
  • can write a scientific report.

General competence

  • can analyze, present and debate specific research subjects in light of the theoretical and practical approaches.
  • can discuss the subject both at expert and non-expert levels.

Teaching and learning methods

The first part of the course is organised into a series of lectures and seminars. Students are expected to play an active role. Lectures are given by the course lecturer and invited lecturers. Students will also be required to present papers, and discuss course themes during lectures and seminars.

The second part of the course is a practical project in groups of 2-5 students. The course is completed by the students submitting a report and giving a presentation of their work.

Course requirements

None.

Assessment

The assessment is based on:

1. Project report done individually or in groups of 2 students. The total length of the report should be between 5 000 - 15 000 words, each student contributing with 5000 - 7 500 words (80% of the final grade)

2. Oral project presentation (30 minutes if a group; 20 minutes if individual) (20% of the final grade)

Both exams must be passed in order to pass the course. The oral examination cannot be appealed

 

New/postponed exam

In case of failed exam or legal absence, the student may apply for a new or postponed exam. New or postponed exams are offered within a reasonable time span following the regular exam. The student is responsible for applying for a new/postponed exam within the time limits set by OsloMet. The Regulations for new or postponed examinations are available in Regulations relating to studies and examinations at OsloMet.

Permitted exam materials and equipment

All aids are permitted.

Grading scale

For the final assessment a grading scale from A to E is used, where A denotes the highest and E the lowest pass grade, and F denotes a fail. 

Examiners

Two internal examiners. External examiner is used periodically.
