=== Abstract ===<br />
<center><br />
'''Improving robot localization by using robot-to-robot relative measurements in cooperative multi-robot teams'''<br />
<br />
Thursday, 10 May 2012 - 11:00am, 114 Steele Lab<br />
</center><br />
<br />
Localization of robots without GPS (or intermittentGPS) is a capability that is required of autonomous robots in several application domains. These include under water, in urban canyons, with poor line of sight to satellites, with adversarial GPS jamming, etc.<br />
Localization by integrating self-motion measurements from on-board sensors such as IMUs/cameras lead to large growth of estimation error. This limits how long a robot can operate effectively without GPS. In a team of collaborative robots, however, there is an opportunity to do better. A robot can occasionally measure another robot's relative pose/position/bearing, usually by using vision-based sensors. This information, when fused with self-motion measurements, can lead to location estimates that are substantially more accurate than what can be obtained with self-motion measurements alone.<br />
<br />
In this talk we will describe a class of algorithms for fusing relative measurements to estimate the pose (position and orientation)<br />
of robots in a collaborative team. Due to the unknown orientations that are to be estimated, the problem becomes an optimization problem over a Riemannian manifold. A least-squares and (approximate) maximum likelihood estimator are developed. The least-squares version can be made distributed: it requires limited communication between nearby robots, but no centralized data exchange is needed. In each case, a gradient descent on the manifold is used to compute the estimates. Much of the earlier work in collaborative pose estimation was limited to 2-D case, the formulation we adopt allows to handle 3-D scenario with no additional difficulty. As is often the case, a number of unanswered questions remain, some of which will be discussed.<br />

== Announcements ==<br />
<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on (1) homework assignments (40%), (2) a week-long lab (20%), and (3) a course project 40%). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of three late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for the week-long lab or the course project'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to<br />
** turn in a hard copy in class,<br />
** or, upload an electronic copy to the course server and send the TAs a note. <br />
:If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Course Project''': Grading for the term project will be a weighted combination of navigation task success, focus task results, and presentation. Each member in the group will receive the same grade. All group members are expected to participate equally throughout all facets of the term project.<br />
<br />
=== Homework Guidelines ===<br />
* On the back of the first page of your homework, write down the number of hours you have spent, including reading. This will help us keep track of the amount of homework and adjust future assignments if necessary.<br />
* Justify your answers. This will help us assign partial credits to your assignment even if the results are incorrect. On the other hand, we will deduct points if only results are shown without the necessary derivations.<br />
* You are encouraged to use professional libraries (such as OpenCV) for reading/writing ﬁles and analogous tasks. However, you cannot use functions which the homework implies you have to write yourself.<br />
* You will be given code examples in a few languages (MATLAB, C++, Python), but you are free to use any language with which you are comfortable. <br />
* You are responsible for the parameters you choose. If we give you a “reasonable” value for a parameter that does not appear to work, you should try other values. <br />
<br />
'''For electronic submissions (including your code)''':<br />
* Package code, data, and answers in a single .zip or .tgz ﬁle. <br />
* Email the writeup as a single file to the TAs. Do not upload multiple files for different parts of the writeup. The file must not be in proprietary formats (e.g. MS Word, Mathematica notebook). We recommend using PDF format to guarantee portability. <br />
* Separate code & commentary: do not write your discussion/derivation in the source ﬁles, but in a separate report ﬁle, clearly labeled as such. <br />
* Include instructions/scripts that allow reproducing your experiments with relatively little eﬀort. For example, include a script “main.m” that calls the other ﬁles.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. You are free to discuss general ideas about the problem. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You cannot copy other people's solution as part of your solution. You cannot share code for homework or look at other people’s code. Reading aloud your code does not count as discussion. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />

== Course Information ==<br />
<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on (1) homework assignments (40%), (2) a week-long lab (20%), and (3) a course project 40%). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of three late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for the week-long lab or the course project'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to<br />
** turn in a hard copy in class,<br />
** or, upload an electronic copy to the course server and send the TAs a note. <br />
:If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Course Project''': Grading for the term project will be a weighted combination of navigation task success, focus task results, and presentation. Each member in the group will receive the same grade. All group members are expected to participate equally throughout all facets of the term project.<br />
<br />
=== Homework Guidelines ===<br />
* On the back of the first page of your homework, write down the number of hours you have spent, including reading. This will help us keep track of the amount of homework and adjust future assignments if necessary.<br />
* Justify your answers. This will help us assign partial credits to your assignment even if the results are incorrect. On the other hand, we will deduct points if only results are shown without the necessary derivations.<br />
* You are encouraged to use professional libraries (such as OpenCV) for reading/writing ﬁles and analogous tasks. However, you cannot use functions which the homework implies you have to write yourself.<br />
* You will be given code examples in a few languages (MATLAB, C++, Python), but you are free to use any language with which you are comfortable. <br />
* You are responsible for the parameters you choose. If we give you a “reasonable” value for a parameter that does not appear to work, you should try other values. <br />
<br />
'''For electronic submissions (including your code)''':<br />
* Package code, data, and answers in a single .zip or .tgz ﬁle. <br />
* Upload the writeup as a single file to the course server. Do not upload multiple files for different parts of the writeup. The file must not be in proprietary formats (e.g. MS Word, Mathematica notebook). We recommend using PDF format to guarantee portability. <br />
* Separate code & commentary: do not write your discussion/derivation in the source ﬁles, but in a separate report ﬁle, clearly labeled as such. <br />
* Include instructions/scripts that allow reproducing your experiments with relatively little eﬀort. For example, include a script “main.m” that calls the other ﬁles.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. You are free to discuss general ideas about the problem. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You cannot copy other people's solution as part of your solution. You cannot share code for homework or look at other people’s code. Reading aloud your code does not count as discussion. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />

== Course Information ==<br />
<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on (1) homework assignments (40%), (2) a week-long lab (20%), and (3) a course project 40%). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of three late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for the week-long lab or the course project'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to<br />
** turn in a hard copy in class,<br />
** or, upload an electronic copy to the course server and send the TAs a note. <br />
:If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Course Project''': Grading for the term project will be a weighted combination of navigation task success, focus task results, and presentation. Each member in the group will receive the same grade. All group members are expected to participate equally throughout all facets of the term project.<br />
<br />
=== Homework Guidelines ===<br />
* On the back of the first page of your homework, write down the number of hours you have spent, including reading. This will help us keep track of the amount of homework and adjust future assignments if necessary.<br />
* Justify your answers. This will help us assign partial credits to your assignment even if the results are incorrect. On the other hand, we will deduct points if only results are shown without the necessary derivations.<br />
* You are encouraged to use professional libraries (such as OpenCV) for reading/writing ﬁles and analogous tasks. However, you cannot use functions which the homework implies you have to write yourself.<br />
* You will be given code examples in a few languages (MATLAB, C++, Python), but you are free to use any language with which you are comfortable. <br />
* You are responsible for the parameters you choose. If we give you a “reasonable” value for a parameter that does not appear to work, you should try other values. <br />
<br />
'''For electronic submissions (including your code)''':<br />
* Package code, data, and answers in a single .zip or .tgz ﬁle. <br />
* Upload the writeup as a single file to the course server. Do not upload multiple files for different parts of the writeup. The file must not be in proprietary formats (e.g. MS Word, Mathematica notebook). We recommend using PDF format to guarantee portability. <br />
* Separate code & commentary: do not write your discussion/derivation in the source ﬁles, but in a separate report ﬁle, clearly labeled as such. <br />
* Include instructions/scripts that allow reproducing your experiments with relatively little eﬀort. For example, include a script “main.m” that calls the other ﬁles.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. You are free to discuss general ideas about the problem. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You cannot copy other people's solution as part of your solution. You cannot share code for homework or look at other people’s code. Reading aloud your code does not count as discussion. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />

<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on (1) homework assignments (40%), (2) a week-long lab (20%), and (3) a course project 40%). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of three late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for the week-long lab or the course project'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to<br />
** turn in a hard copy in class,<br />
** or, upload an electronic copy to the course server and send the TAs a note. <br />
:If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Course Project''': Grading for the term project will be a weighted combination of navigation task success, focus task results, and presentation. Each member in the group will receive the same grade. All group members are expected to participate equally throughout all facets of the term project.<br />
<br />
=== Homework Guidelines ===<br />
* On the back of the first page of your homework, write down the number of hours you have spent, including reading. This will help us keep track of the amount of homework and adjust future assignments if necessary.<br />
* Justify your answers. This will help us assign partial credits to your assignment even if the results are incorrect. On the other hand, we will deduct points if only results are shown without the necessary derivations.<br />
* You are encouraged to use professional libraries (such as OpenCV) for reading/writing ﬁles and analogous tasks. However, you cannot use functions which the homework implies you have to write yourself.<br />
* You will be given code examples in a few languages (MATLAB, C++, Python), but you are free to use any language with which you are comfortable. <br />
* You are responsible for the parameters you choose. If we give you a “reasonable” value for a parameter that does not appear to work, you should try other values. <br />
<br />
'''For electronic submissions (including your code)''':<br />
* Package code, data, and answers in a single .zip or .tgz ﬁle. <br />
* Upload the writeup as a single file to the course server. Do not upload multiple files for different parts of the writeup. The file must not be in proprietary formats (e.g. MS Word, Mathematica notebook). We recommend using PDF format to guarantee portability. <br />
* Separate code & commentary: do not write your discussion/derivation in the source ﬁles, but in a separate report ﬁle, clearly labeled as such. <br />
* Include instructions/scripts that allow reproducing your experiments with relatively little eﬀort. For example, include a script “main.m” that calls the other ﬁles.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. You are free to discuss general ideas about the problem. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You cannot copy other people's solution as part of your solution. You cannot share code for homework or look at other people’s code. Reading aloud your code does not count as discussion. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />

* Include instructions/scripts that allow reproducing your experiments with relatively little eﬀort. For example, include a script “main.m” that calls the other ﬁles.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. You are free to discuss general ideas about the problem. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You cannot copy other people's solution as part of your solution. You cannot share code for homework or look at other people’s code. Reading aloud your code does not count as discussion. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
The required textbook is (also freely available online):<br />

<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />

* First lecture on 1/5<br />
<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
There are two required textbooks:<br />
* David A. Forsyth and Jean Ponce, ''Computer Vision: A Modern Approach'' (2nd Edition), Prentice Hall, 2011.<br />

<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
There are two required textbooks:<br />
* David A. Forsyth and Jean Ponce, ''Computer Vision: A Modern Approach'' (2nd Edition), Prentice Hall, 2011.<br />
** [http://www.cds.caltech.edu/~murray/courses/me132-wi12/caltech/Forsyth_1st_edition_ch1.pdf Chapter 1] (Caltech access only)<br />

<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />

== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />

== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />

== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />

<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
There are two required textbooks:<br />
* David A. Forsyth and Jean Ponce, ''Computer Vision: A Modern Approach'' (2nd Edition), Prentice Hall, 2011.<br />
** [http://www.cds.caltech.edu/~murray/courses/me132-wi12/caltech/Forsyth_1st_edition_ch1.pdf Chapter 1] (Caltech access only)<br />
* Sebastian Thrun, Wolfram Burgard, and Dieter Fox, ''Probabilistic robotics'', MIT Press, 2005.<br />
Additionally, there is an optional textbook that is available as a free download<br />
* Richard Szeliski, [http://szeliski.org/Book/ ''Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications''], Springer, 2010.<br />

* First lecture on 1/5<br />
<br />
== Course Information ==<br />
=== Prerequisites ===<br />
There are no formal prerequisites for the course. ME 115 ab (Introduction to Kinematics and Robotics) is recommended but not necessary. Students are expected to have basic understanding of linear algebra, probability and statistics. We will review some of the required background materials during the first week of lectures. Besides these, students should have some prior programming experience and know at least one of the following languages: C, Python, or MATLAB. Depending on the background of the class, we will hold tutorials for some of the programming languages to help students get started.<br />
<br />
=== Grading ===<br />
There are no midterm/final exams for this course. The grade will be based on weekly homework (60%) and two week-long labs (20% each). Late homework will not be accepted without a letter from the health center or the Dean. However, you are granted a grace period of '''five''' late days throughout the entire term for weekly homework. Please email the TAs and indicate the number of late days you have used on the homework. '''No grace period is allowed for week-long labs'''. <br />
<br />
* '''Homework''': Homework is usually due in one week after it is assigned. You can choose to turn in a hard copy in class or send an electronic copy to Stephanie Tsuei (stsuei at caltech.edu). If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
There are two required textbooks:<br />
* David A. Forsyth and Jean Ponce, ''Computer Vision: A Modern Approach'' (2nd Edition), Prentice Hall, 2011.<br />

If you are unable attend the lecture, contact the TAs to find an alternative way to turn in your homework.<br />
* '''Labs''': Students will form groups of 2-3 people and perform lab experiments together. Detail of this will be announced later in the course.<br />
<br />
=== Collaboration Policy ===<br />
Students are encouraged to discuss and collaborate with others on the homework. However, you should write your own solution to show your own understanding of the material. You should not copy other people's solution or code as part of your solution. You are allowed to consult the instructors, the TAs, and/or other students. Outside reference materials can be used except for solutions from prior years or similar courses taught at other universities. Outside materials must be cited if used.<br />
<br />
=== Course Texts ===<br />
