Welcome to the Unmanned Systems Lab

Our research focuses on Mapping, Localization, Guidance, Navigation and Control for developing autonomous ground and aerial vehicles. Our projects span from algorithmic design and implementation to field experimentation of aerial and ground robots. A specific goal is field deployment of such vehicles in relevant environments. We are currently deploying autonomous shuttles on campus, self-driving cars, trucks and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
