This course is a research oriented course, aiming at providing students some hands-on research experiences. In the first few weeks of the semester, you and Ying will work together to build a wireless robot network. You will have the chance to rebuild a robot, configure a robot, program a robot, and control a robot. Before the end of every class, we will plan the next step and assign research tasks.
In the rest of the semester, you will be grouped, and each group will be expected to complete a research project at the end of the semester. Every group will give a poster presentation for the project at the CLAS and will finish a well-written technique report. Students are encouraged to propose their own projects, but are also welcome to take the projects from Ying. During this stage, there will be several milestones. Students usually are expected to submit their milestone presentation slides every other week and give a 20 to 30 minute presentation to the rest of the class for each milestone.

|Collaboration, Academic honesty||
Computer science, both academically and professionally, is a collaborative discipline. In any collaboration, however, all parties are expected to make their own contributions and to generously credit the contributions of others. In our class, therefore, collaboration on homework and programming assignments is encouraged, but you as an individual are responsible for understanding all the material in the assignment and doing your own work. Always strive to do your best, give generous credit to others, start early, and seek help early from both your professors and classmates.
The following rules are intended to help you get the most out of your education and to clarify the line between honest and dishonest work. We reserve the right to ask you to verbally explain the reasoning behind any answer or code that you turn in and to modify your project grade based on your answers. It is vitally important that you turn in work that is your own. We do use automated plagiarism detection software, so please be sure to abide by these, rather minimal, rules. Reports of academic dishonesty are handled by an academic review board and a finding of academic dishonesty may result in significant sanctions.
