- Although it was reasonable it was still very challenging» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- The option to write a course summary is ingenious, I wish more people had come up with that idea. You have to learn the whole course and you are not able to skip any of it like if studying for an exam. In addition, because you write the things you have learned down, you will learn them much better than if studying for an exam (and forgetting it right afterwards).» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- Big focus on theory and less on the practical side.» (To some extent)
- See answer to 4. Really really good.» (Yes, definitely)
- I think that the tuple (theoretical exercises and project is perfect for this kind of subject. The exercises make us check if we really understood the lecture and the project gives the oportunity to go deeper in a subject of our choice.» (Yes, definitely)
- Think the examination procedure is good» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- Since english is not Peters (or most of ours) mother tongue it is a little difficult to understand at some times. Perhaps to hand out a tutorial/cheat sheet which explains the course and the different words used? Of course this should be handed out at the first lecture.» (Some extent)
- The lecture where clear and well organized which gives us the feeling that we know where we are going and help structure our knowledge.» (Large extent)

- There is very much work for the exam period and much less in regular exercises.» (High)
- I"m doing a master"s thesis simultaneously, so it should be "Very very high". But just the two courses added together makes for a "High".» (High)
- I made the mistake to take too many course this time. But the workload for each course was fine.» (High)
- Took 3 courses where there where a project so time was limited for the most, and the timing with the schedule of the exercises for this course was kinda colliding with my other work that had to hand in the days before» (Too high)
- Due to one extra course, has nothing to do with this course» (Too high)

Genomsnitt: 4

- I really enjoyed this course as an Introduction. I regret that there was not enough time to study more deeply some of the subject. Perhaps it would be worth considering to have this course last two quarter, or made an "advanced" version like it"s done for the algorithm course.» (Good)
- I was surprised in a good way.» (Good)
- I liked it. Very challenging, but kinda satisfying if you pass it. Although it was kinda theoretical» (Excellent)
- Very good. Think about making this course compulsory (or at least part of) the CAS master programme. I learned a lot of things here that would have been good to know when reading neural networks or Wahde"s course, for example.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- exercises with feedback by email.»
- everything»
- * Teaching style. pretty relaxed and based on interaction. »
- The good lecture notes, the course summary.»
- The evaluation method, the lecture"s clarity.»
- Sensors, actuators, cellular automata, matlab coding»
- the good personal help»
- book»
- The mandatory exercises. The choice of examination. Peter Damaschke :)»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More solved examples would be helpful. Also, the home assignments could have a few additional "easier" exercises as a warm-up for the tougher ones. »
- Course material that is to be covered is too much! As a result from any topic you get a little view without deeply understanding and mastering in the point.»
- More exercises, with more choice in their taking.»
- A little more practical moments. »
- Nothing, great course.»
- The homework should definitely be revised. Make sure that the questions are well defined and that they can not be misunderstood as much.»
- more advanced topics, no BBR (if it is the research topic in Chalmers does not make it necessary to be emphasized) there are lots more of important topics in robotics.I believe other topics should be covered as well for the students decide themselves their research field.»
- just to make the exercise easier to understand»
- make own slides, so they all look alike and not randomly picked from the internet and make also slides for everything you write on the board, if you want to copy it all like me it is a lot of work and i could not spend as much time listening like i wanted because i was writing all the time»

16. Additional comments

- Hmm think drawing more pictures to explain things when possible would be pretty good and make it easier to learn»
- nope»
- book good, slides and blackboard-work bad»
