Unmanned vehicles in space, in the air, on land, on sea, and underwater offer exciting opportunities to dramatically improve safety, environmental protection and operational effectiveness – at lower cost – in both industrial and mission-critical settings.
The Autonomous Robotics Research Centre's primary goals include:
UAV research, covering platforms, real-time operating systems, perception and communication algorithms, and control and decision-making algorithms
Autonomous vehicles industrial design and development
Swarm architectures for heterogeneous drones and advanced communication networks
Low-power platforms for nano-size and pico-size UAV classes
Bio-inspired, evolutionary, and self-organised methodologies
