Past Projects
 
Autonomous Coordinated Motion and Mobility (ACMM)
The ACMM (Autonomous Coordinated Motion and Mobility) project integrates and develops controls for more efficient supervised teleoperation of mobile manipulators.
Tartan Racing
Carnegie Mellon University is teaming with General Motors to compete in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge.
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.
Urban Challenge
Very Rough Terrain Nonholonomic Trajectory Generation and Motion Planning for Rovers
We are developing rough terrain trajectory generation algorithms for local path planning and optimal regional motion planning methods using a constrained search space.
