CSCI 473/573: Human-Centered Robotics
Coolbaugh Hall 219, Mon/Wed 7:30-8:45 AM, Spring 2020
This course focuses on the emerging field of Human-Centered Robotics (HCR), bridging together research and application of methodology from robotics, human-machine interaction, and cognitive psychology. This course covers basic concepts and computational models of 3D sensing, robot learning and cognition to perceive humans, understand human behaviors, and decision making and planning in response to humans or environment events.
Evaluation will be through multiple projects. Most of the course projects involve programming.
Prerequisites: CSCI 262 (Data Structure) and MATH 201 (Probability and Statistics).
The ability to program using C++ or Python in Ubuntu is also required.

In response to COVID-19, staring March 30th, CSCI-473/573 will be moved to full online instruction.
Our general strategy is to make the course as flexible as possible, while still making sure it is rigorous.
We will make the following changes:
- We will use the flipped classroom strategy: Lecture videos will be pre-recorded. So students have the flexibility to watch them anytime, without the requirement of attending the online classroom at 7:30 AM M/W. Video links will be posted on the schedule page.
- During class time (7:30-8:45 am M/W), the instructor will be available on Zoom to answer questions of lectures, projects, and others (The Zoom link and password have been sent to students through CANVAS.
- The instructor's office hours (1:30-2:30 PM on Fridays) and TA's office hours (2-4 PM on Thursdays) will be hosted on Zoom using the same Zoom link and password.
- Final project is changed from a team-based project to an individual project focusing on robot understanding of human behaviors.
