Current Projects [Past 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.
Comprehensive Automation for Specialty Crops (CASC)
CASC is a multi-institutional initiative led by Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute to comprehensively address the needs of specialty agriculture focusing on apples and horticultural stock.
Life in the Atacama
Robotic field investigation will bring new scientific understanding of the Atacama as a habitat for life with distinct analogies to Mars.
LORAX: Life on Ice, Robotic Antarctic Explorer (LORAX)
The LORAX: Life on Ice, Robotic Antarctic Explorer project is preparing technology for a robotic investigation of microorganisms surviving within the near-surface ice of the Antarctic plateau.
Lunar Rover for Polar Crater Exploration (Scarab)
The Scarab lunar rover has been designed to carry a 1-meter coring drill and a payload of science instruments that can analyze the abundance of hydrogen, oxygen and other materials.
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.
