Current Projects [Past Projects]
Auton Project
Research into Autonomous Learning Software Systems
Learning Locomotion
Robust planning and control of the quadruped robot "Little Dog" to traverse rough terrain (DARPA sponsored).
LIDAR and Vision Sensor Fusion for Autonomous Vehicle Navigation
The goal of this project is to investigate methods for combining laser range sensors (i.e., LIDARs) with visual sensors (i.e., video cameras) to improve the capabilities of autonomous vehicles.
We are applying machine learning techniques to model and compute long-term and short-term trajectories of people in a variety of settings.
Terrain Estimation using Space Carving Kernels
This project uses information about the ray extending from the sensor to the sensed surface be used to improve terrain estimation in unstructured environments.
UGCV PerceptOR Integrated (UPI)
The UPI (UGCV PerceptOR Integrated) program integrates and enhances the results from UGCV and PerceptOR to increase the speed and autonomy of unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex terrain. By combining the inherent mobility of Spinner with advanced perception techniques including the use of learning and prior terrain data, the UPI program stresses system design across vehicle, sensors and software so that the strengths of one component compensate for the weaknesses of another.
