Autonomous systems such as driverless cars and advanced robots are emerging technologies of today’s engineering. This unit explores components of autonomous systems and provides the students with the knowledge and skills for designing the autonomy for such systems. Students will obtain knowledge in expert systems, searching and optimisation of algorithms for planning and decision making for applications in autonomous systems. The unit also provides foundation and practical skills in using evolutionally, fuzzy logic and neural networks methods design of intelligent autonomous systems.

Students will practice designing/programming the autonomy of a robotic system agent to autonomously complete a given task.
