Autonomous Navigation

Learning-Integrated Perception Based Speed Control

-- Design a robot system that can learn to drive over a given terrain at an appropriate speed using vision and surface roughness. 
-- Build a robot platform for real time testing.

Microbot Navigation

The Vislab has two microrobots which are used to test learning and navigation algorithms. The robots have sensors which detect obstacles, and an overhead camera provides the computer with a view of the maze for feedback.

UC Rover

The UC Rover is a utility cart converted for computer control. It features binocular vision and an array of sonar sensors. It is used for experiments in autonomous navigation.
