Current Projects
Autonomous Off-Road Driving
We are developing autonomous technology for off-road driving in wilderness environments Key developments include perception, planning and control capabilities. This is a joint development with Yamaha Motor Corporation and the CMU Field Robotics Center.
We have developed a mine mapping robot.
Transportation Energy Resources from Renewable Agriculture (TERRA)
We are developing a robotic phenotyping systems for phenotyping crops for rapid breeding decisions. This system positions sensors within the canopy for measurements not observable from above or below. Machine learning and computer vision algorithms are then used to generate phenotyping data from the raw sensor data.
