Level 3 Expert

In this section, I am listing down topics, algorithms, libraries, etc specific to sub-fields (including the ones from Level 2). This is not an exhaustive list. Feel free to send me a message on Linkedin to add further.

Mindset & Pro Tips

  • You first learn the basics of multiple sub-fields (Level 2) and then choose a sub-field (or combination) to learn in depth.
  • Re-Implement a well-known paper or well documented project online, which once implemented, can be modified around and improved on. Best way to internalize the learnings, understand its pros and cons.
  • Make use of an existing library into your project. Note use of functions and their limitations.


When it comes to Robotics & Math, there are areas where you don’t need math and there are areas where you need it. And then there are areas of Robotics which depend on Maths but you can get away with it by using libraries.

If you want to be an expert in Robotics, it is a good idea to level up your Mathematics knowledge:

  • Multivariable Calculus
  • Probability
  • Linear algebra
