My research group works in the area of estimation theory and control for autonomous and semi-autonomous systems, with a special emphasis on robotics and aerospace applications. Specific research areas include sensor fusion and probabilistic perception, control and planning in the presence of uncertainties, human decision modeling, and human-robot interaction.

I co-direct the Autonomous Systems Lab with Prof. Hadas Kress Gazit.  The ASL wiki includes most of the hardware and undergraduate/Masters of Engineering projects, whereas this wiki focuses on the research of my group.

Please congratulate Frank on passing his B-exam. As Frank heads off to Tesla, we are left to ponder this key question: which car(s) are my former students going to get me? Tesla, Nissan/Infinity, or VW? I vote for the Tesla...
