Robotics Research

Robotics is fundamental to enabling exploratory craft to navigate and function in space, on terrain, or underwater. C-STAR faculty are actively involved in developing state-of-the-art techniques to enable novel planetary science missions as well as measurement of hazardous environments here on Earth. Ongoing research by our faculty and research scientists includes intelligent localization methods for autonomously landing robotic explorers, design of robotic systems for exploring under glacial surfaces, and methods for human-robot interaction that enable teleoperated control of robotic assets.
