The bulk of the projects in the course will center around a Hexapod in a virtual environment. We are currently preparing software for use in the hexapod development. In the mean time students can explore CADIAHexapd, the system from last year - the new version will follow this implementation closely.

Thought Questions: weekly assignments for each topic where you write a question about the reading material.
