About

The Intelligent Systems and Robotics course at the University of Essex provides a comprehensive coverage of contemporary intelligent systems, with robots serving as a major example of the technology.

Overview

Thanks to the leading research being undertaken in our School, you will gain a solid understanding of the foundations of this technology, exploring areas including:

  • The principles by which sensed data are converted into useful information
  • The practical aspects of developing intelligent and robotic systems
  • Biologically-inspired robots
  • Biometrics
  • Computational intelligence

Robotics requires a well-developed knowledge of areas ranging from computer science and artificial intelligence, to engineering and neuroscience, in order to produce hardware which can sense and manipulate the real world. This field has allowed us to develop everything from satellites and submarines, to racecars and robots.
