Autonomous Robots: Path Planning
What you'll learn
- Enough about A* Search (A-star) and Path Planning to defend it in an interview
- General robotics systems knowledge
- Python and its usefulness in robotics
- No Python or programming experience required. I'll teach you everything you need to know.
Ever Wondered How Google Maps Calculates the Route To Your Destination? Learn How To Design A Path Planning System of Your Own!
Knowing how to plan a path between your current location and your goal is an essential skill whether its for a self-driving car / autonomous vehicle, a roomba, or even an app like Uber, Waze, or Google Maps.
In this course you won't just learn concepts but will also have a chance to implement, test, and a see the results of your work in real time. For the final project of this course you will need to plan a path between any two locations in New York City. Like Frank Sinatra says, if you can plan a path there, you can plan one anywhere!
With this course, you can level up your knowledge, add an additional skill to your robotics arsenal, and do it all through a program that feels more like a game than it does a class.
This course will teach the A* search algorithm, which is a fundamental robotics algorithm. This algorithm is so fundamental it was even used on the very first mobile robot, Shakey the Robot.

Who this course is for:
- Current or future Roboticists looking to learn about a core part of the robotics software stack
I have a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering which I earned for my research in control system design for automotive applications.
My first job out of school I was responsible for designing motion controllers and stabilization systems for military tank turrets.
I previously wrote robotic software for a startup based out of Toronto Canada.
I currently write software for autonomous vehicles in California.
