We do applied research in sensor-based measurement and control. This research comprises inspection robotics, stereoscopic displays, online process monitoring and control, medical (and other) sensor data fusion and display, and environmental sensing.

Our primary focus is on "difficult measurements in difficult environments." For example, we have developed a tetherless lightweight inspection robot for finding cracks and corrosion on aircraft skins. Other applications that can use the robotics and telepresence technologies we developed in this context include landmine clearing, contraband, explosives, and weapons detection, hazardous materials cleanup, and other scenarios in which "expendable", "low metal content", and "field assembled" are important.

Our publications are accessible for reading online as PDF or for downloading as PostScript files.
