Obtaining accurate and comprehensive information from a complex scene is
one of the most important and relevant problems in robotics. Yet extremely
challenging. When robots are deployed in dynamic environments, they need to
be aware of their surroundings to discern friend from foe, or to separate
important events that require their immediate attention from those
secondary and non-essential. Compared to a single robot acting
individually, the optimal combination of information gathered by several
robots can yield much better results. Especially, when robots are equipped
with different sensors and they acquire information from different
perspectives at the same time. Our goal is to develop novel motion planning
and coordination methods for distributed information gathering and
high-level scene reasoning with a large team of heterogeneous robots
equipped with limited sensing and communication capabilities.


This vacancy is part of the program “Distributed high-level scene reasoning
with teams of heterogeneous robots”, which is funded by the Office of Naval
Research Global (ONRG). Collaboration with our partners in the project,
namely Prof. E. Montijano (U. Zaragoza), Prof. M. Schwager (Stanford) and
Prof. D. Rus (MIT) is expected. Cross collaborations also exist with the
Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions and other
researchers from the TU Delft Robotics Institute. For a glimpse of our
research see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.alonsomora.com_research.html&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=L7fdWS0xab6HAct2RBHhvbpLNZElW6EQQgmghkX4gZg&s=lrXtCJFBR4vSC3dc-6a-snfHtbua3o2iVEtTYMcPl0w&e=.
