Welcome to the Robotic Sensor Networks Lab
We focus on algorithmic and systems aspects of Robotic Sensor Networks (RSNs). Broadly speaking, an RSN is a network of devices equipped with sensing, communication and actuation capabilities. Designing algorithms for robotic sensor networks requires tackling challenging problems that lie at the intersection of robotics, perception and communication. Our group works on a broad set of RSN related problems ranging from theoretical problems such as Pursuit Evasion and Sensor Placement to developing systems in which robots act as Robotic Routers or Data Mules. In recent years, we have been focusing on applications in Environmental Monitoring and Agricultural Robotics.
Please visit our Projects page to learn more about them.
- Our lab will have a strong presence in ICRA'10. In addition to four research papers, we are co-organizing two workshops:
- IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Networked Robots
- Institute on Environment Resident Fellowship
- Workshop on Robotic Wireless Sensor Networks
- JISR -- Special Issue on Networked Robots: Serving the Society
