Past -- Present -- Future

In the past, we have done much work on the application of innovative memory structures for robots and perception-based navigation

Currently, we are not ready to proceed to the next step in inter-robot control / communication by fusing the sensory information of our humanoid robot ISAC with that of a mobile robot assistant, the Segway RMP

In the future, this project should show promise for the development of multi-robot teaming with true knowledge sharing

The goal of fusing the egospheres for the Segway and ISAC is the focus of a new special topics course in the EECS Drpartment at Vanderbilt under the direction of Dr. Kawamura. This task has been assigned to a team of graduate students. Their goals are shown in the Gantt chart below:
