This is the place to start your journey into robotics. But stick to the entire 6 courses. This course is about laying out the basics so don't expect making robots straightaway. All the best!

Great course, pretty fundamental. The professor is the writer of a book and I really feel that I learned something new by 1. reading the book, 2. watching lectures, 3. answering quizzes. The quality of learning would be much less by just reading a book or just watching lectures, the combination of reading and watching and answering quizzes makes this course great. However I would like to say that one must have good motivation to learn robotics, otherwise, these foundations might seem a bit raw.

This course gives you a good introduction into the topic of the underlying math of robot motion in space. I really enjoyed taking this course. Especially the combination of the videos together with the textbook is supporting both, a quick start and also a deeper understanding of the presented topics. Additionally the quizzes and assignments give you a good idea if you actually understood the topics with immediate feedback. I look forward to take the second course of this specialization.

The videos are very thoughtful and really add to the reading of the textbook. It is nice to have the video visualizations and explanations to augment the derivations. The textbook is well-written and clear, however there will be some extra reading to do if you don't understand linear algebra and matrices already. The quiz questions are challenging, but doable. I would have even liked a few more quiz questions to really practice the material.

This course covers the fundamentals of rigid-body transformations required to make further progress in robotics. It's very well organized and takes the student through the relevant chapters of the textbook co-authored by the instructor. Completing the quizzes, video lectures and reading material should give the student a good background in these areas. In addition, the provided code and simulator exercises add a lot of value.
Good Lie-group oriented robotics introduction. I highly recommend not to use the course library and implement the methods on you own as you'll learn more. Other than that, excellent.
Only drawback is the peer-graded assignments. If they were self evaluated with a good set of inputs and expected outputs, the experience would be much better. People who are learning shouldn't be evaluating from my point of view....

The course provides a clear understanding of degrees of freedom, configuration spaces and the methods used to represent the position and orientation of the robot. The book provided with the course is excellent material on the topics covered in lectures. Providing an answer key to the end of the chapter exercise problems will be helpful.

I've Studied a course named introduction to robotics during my BSc studies, it was based on a text book Introduction to Robotics: Mechanics and Control by John J Craig. so i had a good foundation when i started this course and i can easily say although it just an introductory course but it has really boosted my Knowledge.

truly mesmerizing, thankyou for creating this great course and I truly respect the valuable time the team have spend on developing and conveying this invaluable knowledge regarding the fundamentals of robotics, to robotics enthusiasts like me. I learned a lot and my yearning to learn more increased. thankyou once again.

The best course to lay down foundations for anyone who have been looking forward to the same. A totally engulfing courses which surely adds it's value to your skill set and will not only brush up your knowledge, but the interactive nature of Instructor and timely reply to your queries are a total thumbs up.

Good course. Excellent instruction videos supplemented by an easy to jump in textbook material. I think it was a perfect mix between theory and practical experience (considering practical experience in Robotics can be difficult to provide for an online course). Thank you for putting together this course!
Quite a challenging one, but its definitely worth it. I would strongly advise you instead of just watching the videos, read the Resources and the book Modern Robotics provided in this course. It would make your understanding way better since the Lecture videos are somehow shallow.

Amazing course, covers the basis of kinematics that are needed to analyze robot motion.
Some of the math concepts are tough to grasp, but very well put and delivered.
Reading in the book is a must for optimal understanding of the course material.
創建者 Muslim A•
This course is very good as it introduces you to the basics of robotics control and motion. Nice and Interactive Tutors too. However, I suggest you have a sound fundamentals of Linear Algebra, matrices and Calculus. Good for Robotics basics
創建者 Ahmed A•
Very insightful course and you will learn the essentials of robotics science. The skills you acquire here is indispensable if you interested in studying more advanced topics in that field such as robotics control and motion planning.

Excellent course. I learned a lot. The assignments are challenging.
Of the Coursera offerings I've taken, this one gets the closest to my (admittedly failing) memories of a real undergraduate course with some meat to it. Well done!
Very Great Robotics Course, much more systematic than any other course available on coursera robotics course. It will be better if the exercise and assignments are more challenging. Also the available text book is a big plus!

The videos were very usefull ,at first I watch the videos carefully ,with that short video I understand that what is the subject of this part . the summary of the formulas was very usefull and it makes the learning easy.

I thought I knew about rigid body motion. Then, I took this course and learned so much more! The online material along with the book is packed full of information, well explained. I highly recommend this course.
創建者 Armi M•
Thank you to Professor Lynch for such a brilliant, practical and fully understandable, and fully detailed course. It also would be better to put more emphasis on software than traditional calculation. Thank you.

Very nice and compact explanation. Love the teaching style! You have to read the book to really grasp the material, if you're planning on taking this course, you have to take it seriously. It's pretty though.
創建者 Hemanth K•
course content is little hard to understand for newies like me. but still following the modern robotics book makes it easier because that book has a lot of problem to solve by which we can gain confidence

Awesome introduction to robotics fundamentals. It's worth the effort!
Every lecture is well documented and, at the same time, the quizzes challenge your comprehension (you cannot just check some boxes).
創建者 Alexander O•
This course very accurately and consequently introduces mathematical base of robot position and kinematics. I suggest there was a great work behind to make this complicated things convenient to learn.

Very Engineering driven course and you better be ready for the calculations... Made for Engineers.
Coming from an Electrical/Electronic background it was really intuitive. I plan on continuing...

I really enjoyed this course. It is a complex course, I had to put some concentration and dedication to solve some exercises. I love courses that require thinking to solve challenging problems.
