Current Projects [Past Projects]
 
Cooperative Robotic Watercraft
This project's vision is to have large numbers of very inexpensive airboats provide situational awareness and deliver critical emergency supplies to flood victims.
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.
Lunar Ice Discovery Initiative (Icebreaker)
Icebreaker is a proposed mission to explore the south pole of the Moon.
Lunar Regolith Excavation and Transport
This research develops lightweight robotic excavators for digging and transporting regolith (loose soil) on the Moon.
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.
Robust Detection of Highway Work Zones
This project is developing computer vision algorithms to detect and classify highway work zones.
Science Autonomy
The Science Autonomy project seeks to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of robotic planetary investigations by enabling automatic detection of relevant science features, classification of feature properties, and exploration planning that responds on-the-fly.
