ROB498H1: Robotics Capstone Design


The Robotics Capstone Design course is structured to provide students with an opportunity to integrate and apply the technical knowledge gained throughout their degree program toward the solution of a challenging real-world robotics problem. During the half-year course, students work in small teams and have considerable freedom to explore the design space while developing a complete robotic hardware and software system. The challenge task incorporates all aspects of the "sense-plan-act" robot design paradigm, with designs assessed based on engineering quality and performance relative to a series of benchmarks. In addition, each student completes a critical reflection on their team's performance and the evolution of their experience with design during their undergraduate program. Students are supported by a teaching team comprised of domain experts.
