Balancing Theory and Practical Work in a Humanoid Robotics Course

  title={Balancing Theory and Practical Work in a Humanoid Robotics Course},
  author={Krister Wolff and Mattias Wahde},
In this paper, we summarize our experiences from teaching a course in humanoid robotics at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden. We describe the robotic platform used in the course and we propose the use of a custom-built robot consisting of standard electronic and mechanical components. In our experience, by using standard components, the students obtain a deeper understanding of robotics hardware than would be possible with the use of (some) commercially available robot kits… CONTINUE READING
