This course covers instrumentation for mobile platforms, including sensor kinematics, as well as provides an overview of the sensor and measurement system for positioning and navigation of mobile platforms. The course will also contain use of laser measurement equipment, scanners for high precision surface- and position measurement. The course will provide insight into some algorithms for sensor fusion, where multiple parallel sensors are working together. Kalman filter and complementary filter will be implemented on an autonomous mobile platform that will be built as part of the project work.
On successful completion of the course, the student should be able to
