Constrained Controlled Coverage
Coverage of two dimensional surfaces embedded in three dimensions with emphasis on uniform coverage.
Highly-Articulated Robotic Probe
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.
Motion Planning for Snake Robots
Creating algorithims for computer control of hyper-redundant manipulators existing in high dimension configuration spaces.
Retract-like structures for SE(2) and SE(3)
Motion planning algorithm for thr rod-shaped robots, based on distance measurements.
Robotic Demining
We are developing an autonomous robot to find landmines.
Search and Rescue
Giving Urban Search and Rescue workers more technological tools to help find and save victims of natural disasters.
Simultaneous Localization and Mapping
We are developing a geometric mapping strategy that directs a mobile robot to explore an unknown environment while taking into consideration sensor and encoder uncertainty.
