Upon course completion, the student will be able to:
1. Differentiate between different robotic UAS components, identifying conditions for use, limitations, and advantages.
2. Analyze and evaluate airborne robotics sensors—orientation/positioning, system state, visual, aural, and navigation.
3. Explain the different control systems for a UAS and how they are integrated and applied.
4. Classify robotic interaction design principles and recommending application to meet mission or programmatic goals.
5. Identify the difference between semi-autonomous and autonomous systems and when they would be applied.
6. Compare the relationship between sensing and automated or user directed response.
7. Demonstrate the requirements for a comprehension of robotic design by synthesizing a basic robotic UAS system
8. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter. (Effective July 1, 2013)
