      The description of the course:

      A study of autonomous software agent and robotic systems and the principles, design, and implementation underlying such systems. In addition to analyzing the unique challenges and existing solutions in this field, students examine how the topics studied impact local and global community problems. Students are also required to develop and evaluate several multi-agent or multi-robot systems for solving specific public problems and, furthermore, to reflect on civic issues surrounding the use of these systems. One laboratory per week. Prerequisite: CMPSC 111. Distribution Requirements: CL, QR.
