GROUP: Maritime and Multi-Agent Autonomy (347N)
underline
 
The Maritime & Multi-Agent Autonomy group identifies and develops technology for multi-robot teams and for autonomous marine vehicles. Core technologies from this group will inform and enable applications such as spacecraft constellations, robot swarms, networked planetary observers, orbiting distributed apertures, and ocean world explorers. Specific competencies include:

  • Algorithms for coordination, planning, and control of multi-robot systems, including formation flying, distributed task identification and task allocation in heterogeneous teams, and collaborative localization and observation;
  • Autonomy software architectures and software systems engineering (integrating localization, perception, mobility, communications, and human–robot interaction);
  • Motion planning and autonomous mission behaviors for multi-agent operations and for sea surface and subsurface vehicles.
