Space Robotics
Bow Leg Hopper
A novel, single-leg, dynamically stabilized planar robot that efficiently traverses rugged terrains under computer control.
Formal Verification of Autonomous Systems
We are developing tools and techniques to support formal verification of autonomous systems.
Google Lunar X Prize
We are part of a $30 million international competition to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon, travel 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to the Earth.
Inter-Process Communication Package (IPC)
We are developing a high-level support package for connecting and sending data among processes using TCP / IP sockets.
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.
Mars Autonomy
Long-distance marsrover navigation with minimal human intervention.
Motion Free Scanning Radar
We incorporate the current state of the art in non-mechanical scanning antenna technology with advanced millimeter-wave ranging technology to enable a small, reliable, and affordable imaging-radar sensor with no moving parts. Sensors will be demonstrated on the sponsor's equipment in typical operating scenarios and environments.
Very Rough Terrain Nonholonomic Trajectory Generation and Motion Planning for Rovers
We are developing rough terrain trajectory generation algorithms for local path planning and optimal regional motion planning methods using a constrained search space.
