The course website will be on Canvas. All course materials will be shared through the Canvas website, including important class announcements from the Teaching Staff. All assignments should be submitted via Gradescope. We also have a class discussion forum on Piazza. If you have a question, please email both Professor Khatib and Wesley.
Lectures will be held on Zoom this quarter on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00-4:20 PM (Pacific Standard Time). The meeting link for all lectures can be found on Canvas. To join, you must sign in to your Zoom account with your Stanford email. Register your Stanford Zoom account by clicking Log In at this link . We encourage everyone to attend lecture online if possible, but if you miss an individual lecture period contact us and we can share a recording with you. Additionally, contact us if you have time-zone related concerns. Recordings of lectures will not be made available otherwise.
There will be 4 homework problem sets. The homework sets will require the use of the SAI-2 simulation interface. We will distribute the simulator and installation instructions in the first week of class. All assignments will be submitted to Gradescope by 11:59pm on the due date. Sign up for the course using entry code 9W6E85. Late submissions will require approval - contact both Professor Khatib and Wesley.
Although group discussion and work is encouraged, each student should submit their own assignment and perform any necessary calculations/coding fill-ins on their own.
To further explore current advances in Robotics, students will form group and create a presentation covering a specific sub-area of their interest. These presentations will be made to the entire class in the form of mini-sympoisum. More details to come later this quarter.
This class will have a take-home final, distributed in the last week of class. More details to come later this quarter.
Regrades will also be handled through Gradescope. We will begin to accept regrades for an assignment the day after grades are released for a window of three days. We will not accept regrades for an assignment outside of that window. Regrades are intended to remedy grading errors, so regrade requests must discuss why you believe your answer is correct in light of the deduction you received. We do not accept regrade requests of the form "I deserve more points for this" or "that deduction is too harsh".
Students who may need an academic accommodation based on the impact of a disability must initiate the request with the Office of Accessible Education (OAE). Professional staff will evaluate the request with required documentation, recommend reasonable accommodations, and prepare an Accommodation Letter for faculty dated in the current quarter in which the request is made. Students should contact the OAE as soon as possible since timely notice is needed to coordinate accommodations. The OAE is located at 563 Salvatierra Walk (phone: 723-1066, URL: http://studentaffairs.stanford.edu/oae).
It is Stanford’s statement on student behavioral expectations articulated by Stanford’s first President David Starr Jordan in 1896. It is agreed to by every student who enrolls at Stanford. The Fundamental Standard states: Students at Stanford are expected to show both within and without the university such respect for order, morality, personal honor and the rights of others as is demanded of good citizens. Failure to do this will be sufficient cause for removal from the university.
It is Stanford’s statement on academic integrity first written by Stanford students in 1921. It articulates university expectations of students and faculty in establishing and maintaining the highest standards in academic work. It is agreed to by every student who enrolls and by every instructor who accepts appointment at Stanford.
