The course was challenging, but fulfilling. Thank you Coursera and University of Pennsylvania for giving this wonderful experience and opportunity that I might not experience in our local community!

The topic was very interesting, and the assignments weren't overly complicated. Overall, the lesson was fun and informative , despite the bugs in the learning tool(especially, the last assignment.)

The content covers the basic theory well, but for the assignments significant reverse engineering of their MATLAB code is required and the pinned discussion usually lacks detail. Then, when you have questions, you can forget about getting any response from the course staff. If you can't find an answer to your question or help with your problem in a post from a fellow student, you're on your own--the staff ignores the discussion forums for months on end.

Topics covered are good, but need the following:
1) More detail in the lecture related to the exercises, with detailed examples in the lecture.
2) Much more detail in the end of week exercises including a writeup explaining the approach and code (as was the case in Dr. K's quadcoper course)
3) Revise or abandon the current autograder. The feedback is extremely poor to non existent when your code is not working.
3) Redo the code examples -- Too much time is spent attempting to understand what the provided code is for, what relation it has to the other files provided, and where the bugs in the code are. For example, I spent the majority of my week doing code archeology as subsequent debugging as no documentation is provided for the multiple files provided. As such, 80% time saving could be had if these recommendations were put into place.
As well, please use a traditional Matlab approach, not the we based excercise tool. I was only able to proceed in my excercies by using the Coursera provided Matlab desktop as well as and Octave as the web based exercise tool failed to provide insight into what was occurring when errors were present.
4) Provide more timely assistance. The TA assistance is very poor to non existant. When it was available, the assistance was not helpful as the answers did not address the question. On this note, I suspect that many students withdrew from the class as they could not get needed assistance to complete the assignments.

its good that there are tips in the forum
some of the assignments have their quirks
there is always a thing in any school how much people separate technicalities from assignment story
some tend to make assignment that abstracts much of technical hurdles in interest of the course
some leave quirks related to tech with forum help the latter is kinda eliminated to good degree
thanks for the course its great

I like this course because they are covering really complicated topics in very less material. And the assignments are amazing. They are worth the learning effect they create.

A great course in a unique topic. It is very well made with a balance of theory in robotics motion control with practical assignments using the popular language Matlab.
However, to enjoy this course thoroughly, I think the previous course (Aerial robotics) is very necessary. Also, prior experience with MatLab or a patience to pick up Matlab will be very essential to fare through this course smoothly.

A good introduction for computational motion planning, and easy to understand.

A great course ,this course will introduce you to the planning algorithms and will make you do some cool stuff as assignments.

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.

Everything was so relevant and finely explained, but It clearly wasn't a beginner's course, it's more an Intermediate Course.

Good course, completely satisfied. Could have used a bit more material though. For example more tie-ins to the first course would not have been difficult.

I don't have reasons to rate it less but I will recommend that the gap between the course materials and the assignment levels should be bridged.
It took significantly more time in course which almost defeated the whole purpose.

Excellent course and perspective on mapping paths and routes, anybody planning for this should ensure good knowledge of MatLab, it took me longer to complete the course than I expected due to my lack of familiarity with MatLab.

I am glad to learn this class, because the teacher is nice and talk the planing method easily.
