Teaching material

Introduction to Mobile Robotics and Swarm Robotics

I have prepared an introductory course on Mobile Robotics and Swarm robotics. The course consists of guided practical sessions on two main topics: (i) the development of control software for mobile ground robots using the Gazebo simulator and the Robot Operating System (ROS); and (ii) the development of control software for robot swarms using the ARGoS3 simulator.

The contents of the course are free to use and are available online.
