Lesson 104: Robot Localization

Robot Doctor - lesson 104

This video discusses how robots keep track of position as the robot moves, and update their position with math using ranges to known landmarks. This handout covers a lesson review and questions that encourage studnets to use mathematics to have robots find their position on a map relative to landmarks. […]
