The Next Generation of Mobile Robotics for Teaching and Research

Recent innovations in the field of mobile robotics and unmanned vehicles have sparked a heightened interest in mobile robotics research. In order to address the challenges inherent in the field, universities are increasingly creating courses and even programs focused on mobile robotics education. Quanser has reacted to this trend by creating a new and improved version of our successful QBot platform. In this webinar, Quanser engineers will demonstrate how the QBot 2 is ideally suited for teaching and research including: 

  • An overview of the sensors and actuators included in the platform
  • Basic motion and performance
  • The Kinect sensor for mapping and navigation 
  • The curriculum topics included such as path planning, mapping and navigation, and image processing 
  • Expanding the platform for custom challenges and research objectives
