We have taught a number of robotics courses at Australian and German universities, both on manipulator kinematics and on intelligent mobile robots. In all cases has the inclusion of lab components with hands-on embedded robotics systems and/or simulation systems proven to be very successful. Through this, students have gained a better understanding and achieved a higher retention of the subject material and have also been better motivated during the course.
