The Autonomy Lab's research goal is to increase the capabilities, robustness and overall autonomy of mobile robot systems. Our research has these main themes:

  • applying the latest AI-based sensing techniques to robot navigation and human-robot interaction
  • creating tools and techniques for programming, simulating and evaluating populations of robots
  • applying models of animal behavior to extend or improve robots, particularly multi-robot systems
The Lab is directed by Richard Vaughan. Our computer systems are managed by Sepehr MohaimenianPour.
