Suggestions on Online Robotics Courses :
I'm a recent grad from India with Mech engg as major; currently working in a automotive company and changing my domain to robotics. I am currently applying to Masters programs and considering I still have \~6-7 months, I decided to do some online robotics course to strengthen my core understanding in various concepts.
I was decently exposed to robotics during my undergrad study. I'm accustomed with arduino and various sensors, some R-pi. Built quadcopters, RC cars and a few obstacle avoidance bots & the like. Honors in AM(which i think is relevant). I always used to build bots with my friend, who took care of the electronic aspect of the bot with me on the mech aspect. But I have no idea on Planning, control or ML/AI. I only know Python at a beginner level.
So, I was looking at courses which will help build an understanding so that I'm not a total stranger to these concepts during my grad studies. I noticed that FAQ page mentions a Robotics course by PennX in edX, but that is currently unavailable. I shortlisted two courses from coursera, one by UPenn and other by Northwestern Univ. But am unable to decide between the two. Which one would you suggest for me? Also, could you please suggest any other courses that you know of.
I tried to post, but was removed by automod. I hope this belongs here?
