There is a need at the undergraduate level to expose students to the complexities of programming robots to accomplish tasks in real time. This paper outlines how a course in robotics can be taught at the undergraduate level with specific experiments that can be used for incremental learning in programming a mobile robot. The experiments can be conducted using either a commercially available robot or by simulating the actions of a robot. In addition, we detail the caveats of teaching such a course.
