Subject areas:

  • Collaborative robotics, sensors and sensor fusion, Neural networks and fuzzy logic.

Research Interests:

  • Cooperative robotics, sensor fusion, and MEMs sensors.

Research Vision: We seek to understand how information from multiple sensor types can be combined to form a more accurate world view than is available from any one sensor type alone. We draw our inspiration from biological systems which routinely perform sensor fusion with visual, acoustic, olfactory, tactile, and gustatory information.
