Autonomous Robotics


Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicle research is a main component of the KCG lab. We develop smart algorithms for autonomous drones and other UAVs. Those algorithms enable the UAV autonomous navigation and landing in challenging environments (e.g., on a boat).

Moreover, the lab also develops a proof-of-concept for an autonomous boat that can “live” for several months in the water.

one of the hottest topics in the high-tech market. The main goal in automation is minimizing human errors in complex mission.


In our lab, we are developing autonomies for variety of vehicles, ships  and drones. In order to develop automation, we use a wide range of sensors in the field of ultrasound, laser, image processing and more.

Our research deals with bio-inspired robotics and swarm algorithms
