Very Good. I used Octave's pkg load control to do the PID's and rank tests >>rank(obsv(A,C)) which we use in Robot Designs.
In Manufacturing, we typically use FIXED ROBOTS and the pendant is actually creating 3-D points in Space and the Robot is just using multiple state machines to move the servo controllers to those desired fixed points in space via a trapezoidal "move" curve. So, maybe the Fixed Robots could be another course since the Control System is so different~!

A very nice introduction to the control of mobile robots. During the course you have the chance to build your own robot and run your algorithms on it, which you will program in Matlab (you will get a free version of it during the course period). Dr. Egerstedt is a very approachable and motivating lecturer who has an intuitive way to explain things and listening to him makes the already exciting topic even more interesting. Highly recommend!

I am highly obliged to study such kind, of course, related to control systems of robotics. It would be great if we could have an indepth understanding of the mathematics involved in controls. For example, In control theory and stability theory, root locus analysis is a graphical method for examining how the roots of a system change with variation of a certain system parameter, commonly a gain within a feedback system.

Big thanks to teaching stuff for making this course! I'am not so good at math and programming, but lectures and glue lectures were detailed enough to understand.
I still have to glue these observabilities, controlabilitys and other things together, hope to understand their practical meaning while doing programming part.
Thanks again!! Very interesting subject for me and I certainly will continue working on it.

Excellent course, highly recommended for anyone who holds a keen interest in robotics, control and automation. Basic knowledge of control theory and high school level mathematics is required for this course. Dr. Egerstedt makes the course very interesting with his unique and witty teaching methodology. All in all a great course for anyone who wants to start learning robotics from the grassroot level!

Such a great course. For the course crew, keep forward, thanks for what you have offered, and to change the mindset for lots of people like regarding theoretical concepts like, state-feedback, controlability, observability and much more.
I urge you to prepare more courses that elaborates those "Hard
Theoretical" concepts in control, and deliver it in a project-based courses like did. Thanks again

This course is just AMAZING!!
I take 20+ courses from Coursera and EDX, this is one of the best.
If anyone is interested in robotics and don't know where to start, then you should not miss this course.
The teaching style is very good too, if the prof. opened another course in the future, even that course is about cooking, I will definitely take that one too.
Thanks for bringing this course to us.

Thank You Prof. Egerstedt for such a wonderful introduction to the application of control systems theory to robotics. For anyone reading this, I would recommend you to take this course if you are interested even a tiny bit in control engineering or robotics. Further, if similar courses could be provided online on such platforms, students like me could benefit a tremendous amount.

Massive effort was made to prepare this course. It is clear, the course is attractive to follow despite the complicated subject it tackles. I enjoyed the course, lectures, glue lectures and simulation notes. I learned a lot here and wish to continue learning in this field. A very well done course and I am happy my time was well spent :) Kudos to Magnus and his team!

I am a student of automation engineering at the last year of his bachelor degree. I took this course to discover wheater to choose the world of mobile robots as my MSc main field of study. I am totally satisfied with it. As soon as I finish my exams I will revise my notes and complete the simulation material to try how to put theory into practice by myself.

The course was very interesting, making up perfect correlation between the practical robot models and the math behind it. I thoroughly enjoyed all the learning sessions. And quiz is really effective in testing our knowledge gained through lectures. The glue lectures are amazing with full of enthusiasm. Thanks for the team, for such a great effort.

The course covers basics of PID, state-space control and links them to behaviour-based control of mobile robots for navigating in an unknown environment. Prof. Egerstedt's teaching style is the best part of the course which is both intuitive and mathematical. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is looking forward to pursue robot control.

This is about control of wheeled robots. So it's not that complex as legged robots. It is also highly related to autonomous driving. For the above reasons it is a very good course for beginners who want to get some understanding of this field or for people on perception side to learn some basic control theory to be able to do their jobs better.

Very helpuful introduction of autonomus driving vehicle.
The professor is wonderful, I'm looking for deeply investigate control of mobile robots. Maybe one day I write an email for knowing if there is some phd opportunity in Georgia Tech.
The guys that help professor with glue lectures and simulator lectures are impressive.
Thanks for this course.

This is an amazing course if you'd like to get a good introduction to world of Controls in Robotics. The professor derives math and gives explanation for them, good amount of homework exercise. I really wish the the course was updated with time, I kinda feel the simulator and building quickbot has not been updated in a while or enough support.

Great introduction to controls. Gives you enough information to be practical and to research farther for more insight. If you are looking for a traditional mechanical engineering control class this isn't it. This class touches the topics you see but focuses on the generalization of the topic and how it is practically used. Great course.

An excellent and well organized course which takes you step by step into the design of control robots. I highly appreciate professor Magnus Egerstet for his efforts taken into making us understand the underlying principles of controller design . This is a must course for those who are really wanting to shape their career in robotics!!!

This really is a terrific course (but then, what else would you expect from Georgia Tech?) The content is well designed, Professor Egerstedt is clearly extremely knowledgeable and also a great communicator, and the support team have been very active and helpful on the forums.
I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in robotics.

Absolutely amazing, involving and must-attend course if you want to know about mobile robotics or control in general. I took this course in parallel with my conventional lectures in mechatronics and this did help me to understand it much better and faster. Great teamwork at Georgia Tech. Thank you guys! Keep it up and running!

First course I have completed on Coursera. I have learned lot of things about mobile robots i.e. controlling and modelling. Highly influenced me to look into new control strategies like sliding mode control that is widely use in nonlinear control. Thank you professor and every one who support for this course.

This is an amazing course that I passed with pleasure. Great background with programming and the possibility to build their robot. A lot of humor and a great explanation of the material. And one more: the Glue Lectures one of the best parts of this course. I mean, it all great, but this should be noted.

Excellent Course, the first part is about control thoery and the second part shows you how to use control thoery to design controllers for robots. Explanations are very clear and the difficulty of the quizzzes is just right. I hope some day you could offer a course only focused on control theory.

The course is helpful for those who want to understand the control theory application in the mobile robotics field. Its curriculum is well balanced in the context! It is not so deep in theory, and gives the chance for practicing such application. Congrats to Prof. Dr. Magnus and his team!
