2018-2020: Richard Vaughan is on leave and not taking new students. See here for more information

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.
