Current Projects
 
Factory Automation
We are developing the next generation of mobile robots for operating in the factory environments. These mobile robots can localize without modifying the factory and navigate any path in the factory, with the ability to replan paths to avoid unexpected obstacles. These new capabilities will increase the throughput of the factories, as well as decrease the time required to deploy (and re-deploy) the robots into the factory.
Highly-Articulated Robotic Probe (HARP)
We developed and tested a prototype based on an innovative approach of a highly articulated robotic probe.
LSTAT/Snake Robot
We are working with the US Army's TATRC department (Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center) to integrate a snake robot into the LSTAT system.
