In our childhood, often robots are seen as very metallic, totally mechanical devices. But after getting into the robotics field, you will realize there is a lot of software side in robotics. Robotics software engineering is the field where you develop software for robot control and automation. In this article I will list out 11 steps that will improve the essential skills required to pursue a Robotics Software Engineering career. At the end of each step, I will list out selected courses under Recommended Courses heading.
Please note that the first five steps, along with the last two steps, are enough for you to start your career as a Robotics Software Engineer. But if you want a much broader knowledge in robotics, I can assure you following all 11 steps will make you an expert.
