The primary goal of CARS is to facilitate research and development in the area of robotics, artificial intelligence, and systems. CARS fosters innovation, collaboration, and generation of new knowledge by helping to grow UD researchers working in the aforementioned areas, and facilitating their interaction with our industry and government partners.
Research conducted in CARS generally falls under one of these five areas:
Systems & Control
Autonomy & AI
LABS & FACILITIES
CARS researchers work in state-of-the-art research labs, some of which offer access to equipment that is unique. The University of Delaware is among the few institutions with expertise, facilities, and equipment to field autonomous systems in all three atmo/litho/hydro application spheres. . We place emphasis not only on the theory and algorithms behind the intelligent, safe, and reliable operation of autonomous systems, but we also face the implementation challenges of turning theory and algorithms into a functional system that is robust enough to be deployed and be effective under real-world conditions.
Areas of Research Interest Include:
Stochastic Hybrid Systems
Estimation Machine Vision
Brain machine interfaces
