Weekly report

Once a week each project group will present the progress of the project and discuss it with the other groups. A short document describing the latest developments should also be produced and send to Egi at least a couple of hours before the weekly meeting.


There is no specific book to be used for the course. Since it is project based, knowledge from many areas will be needed. Literature in programming, control design and image processing will be useful.


A written report in English and an oral presentation of the projects.

The written report should include a short section named "Programming issues and recommendations" (or similar). After reading this section the reader should have the answers to the following questions.

  • Which programming languages were considered?
  • Why was one programming language chosen over the others?
  • Which development environments were considered (IDEs/Editors)?
  • Why was one development environment chosen over others?

This section should also include the following.

Elaborate on a few tricky programming issues you struggled with and how these where resolved.

Reflection - In retrospect, would you choose the same programming language and development environment if you were to take on a similar project - motivate.

Any additional recommendations regarding programming languages, programming and development tools for next years students.
