Robust Autonomy and Decisions Group

Our work focusses on building autonomous robots and other cyber-physical systems systems, capable of working robustly in application domains such as the following:

  • Human-robot collaborative work in customisable manufacturing, personal robotics, etc.
  • Active sensing, predictive modelling and decision making in energy and environmental systems.

This motivates us to develop new models and algorithms to address conceptial issues such as:

  • Compositional and incremental methods for model learning and learning to act in multi-scale, dynamic environments.
  • Mechanisms of extended interaction for model selection, structure learning and coordinated action in the face of unknown unknowns.

Workshop on Emerging Topological Techniques in Robotics at ICRA 2016

We are helping organise a workshop at ICRA aimed at popularising the use of emerging topological techniques in robotics, also seeking to encourage collaboration between the computational geometry and robotics communities. The workshop will be held on 20th May 2016, in Stockholm. Please see the workshop website for further details.
