This project course will be based on knowledge acquired earlier in the study program. We will bring together several subjects such as signal processing, image processing with computer vision, pattern recognition, control theory and robotics in a few major projects to apply knowledge in practical applications. Typical practical applications will be linked to our robotic platforms, but are not necessarily limited to this.

Learning outcome

At the end of this course, the student should be able to solve one or more practical problems eg by applying previously acquired knowledge. The problem(s) must be solved within a certain time and the work must be documented in the form of a report and an oral presentation.

Required prerequisite knowledge



Project report and oral exam

Form of assessment Weight Duration Marks Aid
Project report 1/2 Letter grades All
Oral presentation 1/2 Letter grades

The course has a continous assessment consisting of a project report and an oral presentation.Both parts must be passed in order to obtain a final grade in the course.The assigned project is carried out in groups of two students. Exceptionally, it can be one or three students per group. The report describes and documents work in the project. The report is made in collaboration with all the participants in the group and all participants will get the same grade.The project report and the oral presentation are linked to eachother.Students who want to improve their grade must therefore take both assessment parts again in order to achieve a new overall grade in the course. Resit opportunities are not offered, those who wish to retake the course may do so the next time the course is lectured.

Coursework requirements

Oral presentation of the project in group is mandatory to get a grade in the course.

Compulsory course attendance that must be completed and approved before access to the laboratory: Electronic Course in Health, Safety and Environment.

Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.

Method of work

The project is implemented within 12 weeks and we expect that each student to spend about 15 hours per week on the project. Normally, two students work together on a project. Thus, scheduled workload is 360 hours per project. Each group is given a brief tutorial meeting each week.

Course assessment

There must be an early dialogue between the course supervisor, the student union representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital subject evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
