Past Projects [Current Projects]
 
Cognitive Colonies
We are developing the basic principles that will best govern a group of robots trying to do useful work in difficult and hazardous environments.
Coordination for Disaster Response
This project seeks to design, implement, and test technology tools to improve the effectiveness of team coordination in disaster response scenarios.
Education e-Village
To address the need for relevant, accessible and useful resources to enhance technology education in developing regions, TechBridgeWorld initiated Education e-Village (E-Village). E-Village is an online community where educators from around the world can share ideas, experiences, expertise, educational resources, and strategies to promote and enhance technology education. The concept for E-Village began with an introductory robotics course co-taught at Ashesi University in Ghana. Partnerships with educators from universities around the world have greatly impacted research on this project. The E-Village prototype was designed based on educator feedback from universities in Bangladesh, China, Ghana, the Philippines, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States
Federation of Intelligent Robotic Explorers Project (FIRE)
We are investigating and understanding fundamental issues in heterogeneous multi-robot coordination.
Human-Robot Teams
The vision of effective human-robot teams working together efficiently and seamlessly in uncertain and dynamic environments motivates our work. We build on five years of experience in this domain, working together with the Boeing Company, to enhance the state of the art in coordination mechanisms that will realize the vision of effective human-robot team operations in a variety of real-world settings.
Sun Synchronous Navigation (Hyperion)
We are developing the algorithms, technologies, and experiments that will fulfill the vision of sun-synchronous circumnavigation.
Treasure Hunt: Pickup Teams
We are developing a single heterogeneous human-robot team capable of effectively locating objects of interest (treasure) spread over a complex, previously unknown environment.
