Learning outcomes

This course presents the main issues related to control and planning techniques for mobile robotic platforms. The objective is to provide the students with the ability to design, apply and evaluate algorithms that allow mobile robotic platforms to interact with the surrounding environment by performing complex tasks with a high level of autonomy.




At the end of the course the students must demonstrate to understand the fundamental concepts related to localization, trajectory planning, task planning, decision-making under uncertainty and machine learning in the context of mobile robotic platforms.

Moreover, the students must demonstrate to be able to work with the main development tools for mobile robotic applications and to be able to define technical specifications for deigning and integrating software modules for mobile robotic platforms.




The students must also be able to deal with professional figures to design solutions for the high level control of mobile robotic platforms and to continue the studies independently following the technical evolution in the field of mobile robotics and developing innovative approaches to improve the state of the art.

Program

– Kinematics and dynamics for mobile robots (e.g., non-holonomic constrain, unicycle-like model).
– Navigation for mobile robots: localization and mapping (e.g., Extended Kalman Filter SLAM), trajectory planning (e.g., navigation functions).
– Decision-making under uncertainty (e.g., Markov Decision Process) .
– Reinforcement learning for mobile robotic platforms (e.g., model-based and model free approaches, Deep RL).
– Lab: implementation of autonomous behaviors for mobile robotic platforms using state of the art development toolkits (e.g., ROS), simulation environments for empirical evaluation (e.g., Gazebo/Stageros/Vrep), validation on simple mobile platforms (e.g., turtlebot3).

Examination Methods

The exam is composed of an oral test and a project that focuses on mobile robot programming.

Final examination regulations

Upon completion of the Master’s degree dissertation, students are awarded 24 CFU, which equates to no more than 4-5 months of full-time work.

Goals
The primary goal of a dissertation is to develop an original study that may include an application project or a theoretical topic related to specific design issues, or a critical review of the most recent developments in a given field of study. During the preparation of the dissertation, under the guidance of the Supervisor and co-supervisors (if any), the student is expected to conduct an in- depth study of the chosen topic, while gaining the ability to summarise and creatively apply the knowledge acquired. The dissertation should focus on topics of engineering and computer science, or closely related areas of study. The work shall consist in the written presentation of activities that may be structured as follows:

  1. design and development of applications or systems;
  2. critical analysis of contributions from the scientific literature;
  3. original research contributions.

The dissertation shall be written in English and can be presented either in English or in Italian, also relying on multimedia tools such as presentations and videos.

Assessment methods and examination procedures
Each dissertation can be either internal or external, depending on whether it is carried out at the University of Verona or in collaboration with another institution. For each dissertation a Supervisor, one or more co-supervisors (optional) and an Examiner will be appointed. The Examiner is appointed by the Computer Science Teaching Committee at least 20 days before the presentation of the dissertation, once the student's eligibility to take the Master's degree examination has been verified. With regard to the legal aspects related to the dissertation and its scientific outcomes (e.g. intellectual property of research outcomes), please refer to the relevant legislation and the University Regulations.
Evaluation of the dissertation
The Supervisor, the co-supervisor/s (if any) and the Examiner will evaluate the dissertation based on the following criteria:

  1. level of in-depth analysis carried out, in relation to the most recent developments in the areas related to information technology, with a focus on medical and biological applications;
  2. scientific and/or technological outcomes of the dissertation;
  3. student’s critical thinking;
  4. student’s experimental and/or formal development;
  5. student’s ability to carry out independent work (this point will not be assessed by the Examiner);
  6. value of the methodologies used;
  7. accuracy in planning and writing the dissertation.

Graduation mark
The graduation mark (based on a 110-point scale) is a whole value between 66/110 and 110/110 and is calculated by adding together the following elements (then rounding the result to the nearest whole number, e.g. 93.50 => 94; 86.49 => 86):

  • 1) the average of the marks gained in the modules, weighted according to CFU, converted to a 110-point scale;
  • 2) evaluation of the dissertation and the oral presentation during the final examination, based on the following methods:
    • a) each of the points 1-7 listed above will be assigned a coefficient between 0 and 1 (fractional coefficient with one decimal place);
    • b) the quality of the presentation will be assessed by awarding a coefficient between 0 and 1 (fractional coefficient with one decimal place);
    • c) the sum of the points resulting from (a) and (b).

The Graduation Committee may award one extra point in the following cases: cum laude honours obtained in the exams taken during the degree programme; participation in internships officially recognised by the Computer Science Teaching Committee; taking extra modules; and the achievement of the degree in a time that is shorter than the normal duration of the degree programme. If the final score is 110/110, the Graduation Committee may award cum laude honours by unanimous decision.

External dissertations
An external dissertation is a work carried out in collaboration with an institution/body other than the University of Verona. In this case, the topic of the dissertation must be agreed in advance with a Supervisor from the University of Verona. In addition, the student must indicate at least one co- supervisor belonging to the external institution/body, who will support the student during the work on the dissertation. The Supervisor and the co- supervisors must be indicated in the online graduation application. The insurance aspects relating to the student's stay at the external institution are regulated by the regulations in force at the University of Verona. If the dissertation involves a period of training at the external institution/body, then it is necessary that the University of Verona enters into a specific agreement with such institution/body. The scientific outcomes of the dissertation will be available to all parties involved. In particular, the contents and results of the dissertation are to be considered public. For all matters not strictly scientific (e.g. agreements, insurance) the resolution of the Academic Senate of 12 January 1999 shall be taken as a reference.

Supervisor, co-supervisors, examiners
The dissertation presentation is introduced by the Supervisor. Professors belonging to the Department of Computer Science may be appointed as Supervisors, as well as any external lecturers who are deemed suitable by the Teaching Committee based on their area of study and level of expertise.
In addition to those who have the above requirements to be appointed as Supervisor, the following individuals may be appointed as co-supervisors: researchers working in external research institutes, research grant holders, post-doctoral fellowship holders, PhD students, technical staff of the Department, external experts appointed by an Italian University, corporate officers who have a remarkable experience in the field relevant to the topic of the dissertation. Examiners may be appointed among lecturers and researchers at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona, who are deemed to be experts in the specific field of the dissertation topic.

Graduation Committee
The Graduation Committee shall include five members, of which at least four are professors in the Master's degree programme in Computer Engineering for Robotics and Smart Industry. Based on the number of graduates, the Computer Science Teaching Committee will identify the most appropriate organisational methods for administering the examination, and it shall make available the calendar of tests at least one week before the examination itself. The procedures and deadlines for the submission of the graduation application are established by the Computer Science Teaching Committee and by the relevant offices.
