# How to cite these notes

subtitle     = "Perception, Planning, and Control",
howpublished = "Course Notes for MIT 6.4210",
author       = "Tedrake, Russ",
year         = 2022,
url          = "http://manipulation.mit.edu",
}

# Annotation tool etiquette

My primary goal for the annotation tool is to host a completely open dialogue on the intellectual content of the text. However, it has turned out to serve an additional purpose: it's a convenient way to point out my miscellaneous typos and grammatical blips. The only problem is that if you highlight a typo, and I fix it 10 minutes later, your highlight will persist forevermore. Ultimately this pollutes the annotation content.

There are two possible solutions:
Ideally, once I mark a comment as "done", I would appreciate it if you can delete that comment.

I highly value both the discussions and the corrections. Please keep them coming, and thank you!

# Some great final projects

Each semester students put together a final project using the tools from this class. So many of them are fantastic! Here is a small sample that captures some of the diversity.
