Mobile Robot Algorithms Laboratory

The ultimate goal of the Laboratory is to realize the Human's long-standing dream of having a fully autonomous mobile assistant who can perform assignments and make decisions on his own to achieve the goal.

The effectiveness of an autonomous mobile robot is to a great extent determined by how well it moves around an unfamiliar place. In robotics, a problem of creating a map of an unknown environment and tracking robot's own location within it is called Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). At this moment we work on optimal SLAM algorithms for a group of mobile robots. The beauty of this problem is its multidisciplinary nature: algorithms, embedded and system programming, machine learning, computer vision, control theory, and many other subjects are brought up.
