Current Projects [Past Projects]
 
Autonomous Vineyard Canopy and Yield Estimation
The research project aims to design and demonstrate new sensor technologies for autonomously gathering crop and canopy size estimates from a vineyard -- expediently, precisely, accurately and at high-resolution -- with the goal to improve vineyard efficiency by enabling producers to measure and manage the principal components of grapevine production on an individual vine basis.
Comprehensive Automation for Specialty Crops (CASC)
CASC is a multi-institutional initiative led by Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute to comprehensively address the needs of specialty agriculture focusing on apples and horticultural stock.
EMBER
The Ember project uses multi-agent teams, comprised of autonomous and human agents, to achieve effective results under emergency situations.
UAV/UGV Air-Ground Collaboration
This project is concerned with the development of a distributed estimation system of collaborating UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and AGVs (Autonomous Ground Vehicles) that detect, track and estimate the location of a person, vehicle or object of interest on the ground.
