This is a new Introductory Robotics course which emphasizes team work and expects teams to accomplish a number of well-defined way points or challenges.

In the second part teams teams will have access to a high-performance CoRobot robotic vehicle with a four-degree-of-freedom arm and build-in camera for autonomous as well as teleoperated operation.
