Sensing allows us to interact with the physical world. Measuring, interpreting and taking actions based on the sensor readings. With sensors and microcontrollers or single-board computers we can create intelligent systems and collaborative robots that sense and react making the physical world programmable. 

From touch, distance, orientation, and others we will cover a wide range of sensors to capture the environment in many different ways. All these data coming from the sensors will be processed and filtered to extract the most relevant information. With cameras and RGBD cameras along with computer vision techniques we will bring the sense of sight to our robots allowing them to detect faces, objects and orientate within the space.

Learning objectives

This seminar will focus on how to use different types of sensors, how to process and filter the data read from the sensors, how to visualise the data and how to use the data to control actuators. Finally we will integrate Arduino with ROS.
