Learning Objectives
BackgroundLinear AlgebraLinear algebra refers to the study of vectors and linear functions. Linear algebra come up all the time in robotics from computer vision to manipulation. It is helpful to have a solid understanding of vectors and matrices for robotics. In this homework, we touch on orthogonal matrices, inverses and transposes. Further reading can be found here: Orthogonal Matrix, Transpose and Inverse. Image ManipulationWe have learned a little bit about ways to think about and identify items from arrays of numbers. Here are some concepts that may be helpful: thresholding, feature identification and detection. Homework RequirementsThe 2017 Specifications for Homework are presented in the following document.
