Robotics and Controls

From the deepest oceans to outer space, robotic devices have been used in search-and-rescue missions, in environmental exploration and inspection, and in a host of other applications. Among the main motivations for designing, controlling, and deploying robots is to replace humans in “dull, dirty, and dangerous” jobs.

Areas of Expertise

  • Robotic navigation and mapping for exploration and intelligence gathering
  • Human-assistive technologies for the visually or mobility-impaired
  • Robotic networks for cooperative active sensing in environmental monitoring and intelligent transportation
  • New bio-inspired mobile robotic designs and control algorithms for emergency response and defense
