It is a good course, really like it.

Most basic and well explained course I have ever taken. The concepts are essential to obtain a proper understanding of advanced concepts in path planning and I believe the course does a good job in preparing the prospective student for the same.

Conceptually good but knowledge of coding is a prerequisite for this course.

This course gave me a good introduction to this field of Robotics, I'm really passionate about it. Thanks!
