Past Projects [Current Projects]
Asynchronous Teams of Autonomous Agents (A-Teams)
An asynchronous team is a way of organizing large numbers of very different types of agents-from the simplest of microelectromechanical devices through intelligent robots to expert humans.
Autonomous Helicopter (HELI)
Develop a vision-guided robot helicopter
Composable Autonomous Driving Behaviors Architecture
This project aims to develop an architecture for autonomous driving behaviors software development and implementation with the following key features: modularity, configurability, instrumentability, and scalability.
We have developed two Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) (by retrofitting two Polaris all-terrain vehicles (ATVs)
Distributed Robotics Systems - CyberScout (CyberScout)
Tactical surveillance collaborative robotics.
Distributed Surveillance & Sensing
Hierarchical, distributed, and active perception system
Interactive Robot Programming
We are developing human-machine interfaces to allow non-experts to interact in a human manner with robots.
Real and Virtual Environment for Multiple Robots
General-purpose framework to run and simulate multiple mobile robot systems
Reliability of Mobile Robot Teams
We are developing analytical methods for predicting mission failure probabilities for mobile robot teams given mission specifications and component reliability data.
Self-Mobile Space Manipulator ((SM)2)
A simple, independently mobile, modular, low mass, low cost robot for space station EVA.
Tartan Racing
Carnegie Mellon University is teaming with General Motors to compete in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge.
Telesupervised Adaptive Ocean Sensor Fleet (TAOSF)
We are developing a HAB Investigation Telesupervised Adaptive Sensor System (HABITASS) to address the limitations of existing systems.
Transformer Winding Automation
Increase the production speed and quality of transformer winding through sensing and automation
Urban Challenge
Wide Area Prospecting Using Supervised Autonomous Robots
We are developing teams of telesupervised autonomous prospecting robots for the planned NASA Lunar and Martian colonies.
