Intelligent Autonomous Robotics (IAR)

Response to 2015/16 survey feedback.

I have taken note of the feedback from students in this course survey, and have the following comments in response:

  • I am glad to note that the overall evaluation seems very positive, and in particular there are high ratings for promptness and helpfulness of feedback.
  • The rating for helpfulness of practicals (the only item under 'about your course') is somewhat lower, although the comments mainly reflect positive views. The only specific issues raised regard the reliability of the robot hardware and accessibility of the robot lab space (pressure of other classes using the same space). We have tried to make sure that replacement robots are available promptly when hardware issues arise. Unfortunately the size of other classes using the lab space is not under our direct control, but we will try to find suitable solutions.
