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.
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.
Distributed SensorWebs
The Sensor Web initiative develops and implements wireless technology for distributed sensing and actuation in horticultural enterprises.
Dynamically-Stable Mobile Robots in Human Environments
We are developing novel dynamically-stable rolling machine and walking machine research platforms to study interactions with people and operating in normal home and workplace environments.
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.
Hydroponic Automation
We are developing inexpensive robotic approaches towards hydroponic growing, which can increase overall crop yield.
