In all honesty, most of the terms just flew right over my head, but as for the basic gist, I see the evolution of robots as something quite similar to how my idea of robots has been evolving over class. To begin with, we started with something basic, like our car, but then there’s actually more that we can do, especially as the more we learn and develop. And with each iteration and discovery, the robots just get more and more refined.
One of the things that really stand out to me from the reading was the Kalman filter because of the math formula that I just completely glossed over, because I didn’t understand it all. But of course, someone had to come up with that formula, and someone had to come up with the programs and the robots that we’ve been using. And people are dreaming so big about robots these days, and I can’t help but feel a little bit of awe for the people trying to make something that doesn’t even exist.
