About the Course

How can robots perceive the world and their own movements so that they accomplish navigation and manipulation tasks? In this module, we will study how images and videos acquired by cameras mounted on robots are transformed into representations like features and optical flow. Such 2D representations allow us then to extract 3D information about where the camera is and in which direction the robot moves. You will come to understand how grasping objects is facilitated by the computation of 3D posing of objects and navigation can be accomplished by visual odometry and landmark-based localization....

This course was truly amazing. It was challenging and I learned a lot of cool stuff. It would have been better if more animations were included in explaining complex concepts and equations.

Outstanding Course! I could always count on Prof.Jianbo to crunch some of the most complex and confusing parts of the course into a much easier understandable language.

The content is quite useful but the teaching can be improved upon through shorter videos and more animations instead of hand gestures (or static images) to explain mathematical derivations.

The content is not very easy to understand because the lecture speaks very fast and the document is not very sufficient. But in all, the content is good, help me with my research.

The concepts were explained very well and clearly. The last week content seemed a bit complicated to follow, but it was not unsolvable. I enjoyed the course. Thank you!

The 4th week content is hard to follow than the previous three. It would be better if more detailed math and examples are provided in the 4th week.

Subtitles are generated by machines I think. Very many subtitles are wrong. It is very unfriendly to non-English speaking users.

Extremely fast-paced course that gives a great overview of Perception but leaves a lot of things unexplained or without proofs.

Very interesting and useful course. Professors give a lot of information. However, some explanations are not very clear.

Good course, but assignmets are too long, difficult and with no much help. Workload is overpassed

I was expecting Some implementation of the SFM pipeline from OpenCV or OpenMVG.

Really good topic but the material can be improved a lot more.

And it's free !

To put it simply: Shi's content is good and Danniilidis' content is bad.
