Course home Syllabus Schedule Assignments

Course Description: 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.

Instructor: Prof. Hao Zhang

Teaching Assistant: Terran Mott
CSCI 473/573 offers hybrid in-person and remote classes in Spring 2021 due to the pandemic. Our general strategy is to make the course as flexible as possible, while still making sure it is rigorous. Lectures will be recorded during the class time and made available afterwards on the schedule page. Students have the flexibility to watch them anytime, without the requirement of attending the class in person at 7:30 AM M/W. The instructor's office hours (1:30-2:30 PM on Thursdays) and TA's office hours (4-6 PM on Tuesdays) will be hosted on Zoom to ensure safety (Zoom links are posted in CANVAS).
