ESP seeks to improve the state-of-the-art in estimation, search, and path planning. Our approach is to understand the problem fundamentals and then exploit these insights to develop better solutions. Current research includes

  • multimotion estimation,
  • next best view selection,
  • high-dimensional optimal path planning, and
  • unconventional path planning.

ESP tests its algorithms on robotic solutions to real-world problems. Areas of current interest include

  • autonomous 3D inspection,
  • aerial ecological monitoring,
  • planetary exploration,

and any other challenging problems we find, especially for Flighty our new aerial robotic research platform.
