CMU and JPL Receive NASA Support

October 10, 2017

NASA has awarded $100,000 to the Robotics Institute and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory through its Strategic University Research Project program to develop new navigation strategies that would enable future planetary rovers to traverse more complex terrains at higher speeds than now possible. Alonzo Kelly, professor of robotics, and robotics Ph.D. student Venkat Rajagopalan will work to develop algorithms that will intelligently adapt to wheel slip and sensed terrain information.
