Do you want to know how robots work? Are you interested in robotics as a career? Are you willing to invest the effort to learn fundamental mathematical modeling techniques that are used in all subfields of robotics? If so, then the "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" specialization may be for you. This specialization, consisting of six short courses, is serious preparation for serious students who hope to work in the field of robotics or to undertake advanced study. It is not a sampler. In Course 1 of the specialization, Foundations of Robot Motion, you will learn fundamental material regarding robot configurations, for both serial robot mechanisms and robots with closed chains. You will learn about configuration space (C-space), degrees of freedom, C-space topology, implicit and explicit representations of configurations, and holonomic and nonholonomic constraints. You will also learn how to represent spatial velocities and forces as twists and wrenches. This material is at the core of the study of anything that moves (e.g., robots). This course follows the textbook "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" (Lynch and Park, Cambridge University Press 2017). You can purchase the book or use the free preprint pdf. You will build on a library of robotics software in the language of your choice (among Python, Mathematica, and MATLAB) and use the free cross-platform robot simulator V-REP, which allows you to work with state-of-the-art robots in the comfort of your own home and with zero financial investment....



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


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!

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....

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.

創建者 Shivoh C


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.

創建者 Madhukar T


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.

創建者 Abhijith R


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!

創建者 Abd-el-Samad


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.

創建者 Osama A A


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.

創建者 John M


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!

創建者 黄玉轩


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!

創建者 anita j


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.

創建者 Jean V


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.

創建者 Wahyu G


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

創建者 Giulio C


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.

創建者 Ofuzim O W


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...

創建者 Ivan F


Curso muy completo! Lo que mas me gusto fue el capitulo 3 de las rotaciones. Sin embargo si no tienes cursos realizados de fisica vectorial y algebra lineal se te hara dificil.

創建者 David L L C


Un excelente curso, altamente recomendado, me ayudó a recordar cosas básicas del algebra lineal que vi hace unos años atrás y a enfocarlo a un escenario completamente nuevo.

創建者 Muhammad T


Very well structured and amazing team of tutors! Loved the way the course was designed and carried out! Much thanks to Coursera and Professor Kevin Lynch! Thank you!

創建者 José P L A


Excellent introduction to the course, for someone who has been 4 years out of academic life I found it challenging yet satisfying to retake linear algebra concepts

創建者 Abdelrahman S S E


An excellent introduction to Screw theory and to Parallel manipulators in general for any one who wants to start developing or working on closed chain robots.
