Home Teaching WS2021 Parallel Computing Lab

Lab Parallel Computing for Mobile Robots (MA-INF 4226)

In this lab, students gain hands-on experience with parallel computing principles and the CUDA framework. Starting off with simple, introductory examples and then moving on to a common motion planning task, a parallelized version of shortest path finding with the A* algorithm in a Visibility Graph will be implemented using C++ in small groups of two or three students. More details on the topics and the requirements will be presented at the first introductory meeting.

Prerequisites: C++, Linux

Contents: CUDA computing, Shortest path planning, Collision Checking, Visibility Graph, A*



Important dates:

The introductory meeting for all interested participants will take place on Wednesday, 11.11.2020 in room 0.042. In the introductory meeting, we will talk about the topics of the  lab in more detail, give a short introduction to CUDA computing, and answer questions. Due to Covid-19 related regulations of the University, the introductory meeting will be conducted wearing masks while maintaining a minimal distance of 1.5 meters. The names of the persons taking part in the meeting have to be documented.
