The Mobile Autonomous and Robotic Systems (MARS) course at Grenoble INP Institute of engineering Grenoble INP, Graduate schools of Engineering and Management Université Grenoble Alpes ​​​​​​​is an advanced academic program on mobile robotic and autonomous systems. This highly competitive program includes advanced courses in artificial intelligence, control theory, drones, embedded systems.



The Mobile Autonomous and Robotic Systems (MARS) course at Grenoble INP Institute of engineering Grenoble INP, Graduate schools of Engineering and Management Université Grenoble Alpes aims at offering an international master program that allows a better understanding of technical and scientific aspects of connected and autonomous mobile robotic systems and to understand their interactions.

It englobes an advanced academic program on:
  • ​​​​​​​Mobile and aerial robots that can act and evolve autonomously in complex environments.
  • Perception for detection and tracking of moving objects.
  • Navigation and Path Planning
  • Robotic operating system (ROS) 
  • Artificial intelligence planning for autonomous robots requiring little or no supervision
  • ​​​​​​​Machine learning
  • Advanced methods for optimal control and predictive control
  • Methods to monitor and diagnose dynamic systems with a study on the reliability of a systems subject to failure
  • Distributed optimization and game theory
  • Embedded systems: microcontrollers architectures and sensors for robotics
  • Cyber-security: Make risk analysis, detect cyber-attacks and develop strategies. Implement some cyber-security mechanisms, on the communication infrastructure and on the robot systems
  • Intelligent mobility and transportation to improve the safety of the vehicle and the comfort of the passengers, as well as the detection and reconfiguration of the controllers in case of emergency.
  • Multi-vehicle coordination, in the perspective of understanding the behavior of groups of autonomous and non-autonomous robotic systems.

This program is intended for a public wanting to work in the field of robotics, automotive, aeronautics, and industry. 

The courses are given by highly qualified intentionally known staff. The training is supported by researchers from associated research laboratories and practitioners from industrial partners.
