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!

It is a pretty good starting course into the world of robotics. It is not easy and dives straight into the hard concepts. The presenter is well versed in this topic and is also the author of the book being used for this course. The reason for giving this four star and not five is because most of the course has to be done be self study and the video lectures are short and just barely scrape the surface of the contents.

Amazing course and definitely worth the time investment!

It may be, that what I've perceived to be a slight lack of detail in the explanatory videos, is a deliberate attempt at prompting the student to dig in to the text for more answers. Yet, there were some rare occasions where I found myself wishing for more emphasis on certain critical points. Overall, the course is a great introduction to the fundamentals of representing robotic configurations and the mathematics required to manipulate these configurations.

Great lectures! It's a good start to learn robotics with the representations.

Just one simple suggestion: the part of the homogeneous representation, especially the screw representation section, is quite hard to follow. The reason might come from the lack of demonstrations or pictures to show it just a decomposition of the speed on the rotation axis and the orthogonal axis.

i thought this course would be like a beginner course but i was rather a difficult one. If anyone is looking for a career in this field then please take this course. If anyone is just interested in robotics(like me), then do not take this course as it is a specialisation course and not for beginners

創建者 Aditya C


It was a great course and I got to learn a lot. The tests were not easy to solve which ensured complete understanding of the concepts. However, would have been the best if the concepts were explained more clearly in the video in simple language.

The course could have been better by giving more challenging project so that students can understand how much important are the fundamentals and a solid base is always beneficial before learning anything new.

創建者 Jishnu S


Great course and very good exercises. But it is completely self study, no use or very little use of video lectures. Not sure how its going to be in later courses of this specialization.

創建者 Himanshu V


It's a great course to learn basic mathematics in Robotics. I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to understand Robotics profoundly.

創建者 Abizer P


It was a pretty informative Course. It did great job in introducing essentials. Just hope that the videos were more insightful

創建者 Aditya H


Some tutorials provided for instructing about how to use Matlab would have been great.Otherwise everything else was great.

創建者 Saimon S


The Course is good. Delivered basic knowledge of robotics clearly. But there are still some scopes need to be improved.

創建者 Mayur


This Course was not fully explained in the videos, one has to refer a book while following the course material

創建者 Alexandr Z


A good course , but i would like more examples of every task with specific parameters not variables

創建者 Navin B


It was an amazing experience to learn robotics this course teaches lots of new things.

創建者 Jorge I P B


I​t was good, The last part was not very clear. There were some missing concepts

創建者 Sandhya V


The videos really need to be more detailed, especially from Week 3 onwards.

創建者 KwangHoe K


Good for a Robotics Software Engineer

創建者 Luming


good!hope more example

創建者 Ayush K P


It is the best course to start the career in the field of robotics.All the explanation related to the terms and topics in the video is very short.It gives the theory part in a good way. But there is no numerical problem, which is tough to understand it and how to implement it.If this platform will provide the answer key of book ,it will be very helpful for all the user to match their answer(Only answer Key of the all chapters).

創建者 Nikhil B


This course is great for building the foundations of robot motion. The assignments are good and the flow of the course is nice too. However, course and the book lacks the practice problems. Sure there are exercises at the end of each chapter in the book but it would have been nice to see some solved problems which would help clear the concepts further.

創建者 sarthak v


Clear description and detailed analysis not available in the 4th week. Making it quite cumbersome process to realize the mistakes done in answering the questions (especially last quiz of 4th week)

創建者 Sahil G


this course is good for new learners but the programming part is not detailed explained in video lectures and the questions are too tough to be solved. other then , interesting course .



certain things were hard to grasp expecting more detailed explanations in an easier language
