NSF Career Project

Posted by Tim on March 10, 2023 in Career Oportunities, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

The NSF Career project is looking to recruit Honors College Students for research that includes Hands-on Experiments with Teams of Tiny Ground Robots and Drones!

The project focuses on programming tiny (palm sized) ground-based robots and aerial robots (aka drones), and performing experiments with them in a motion capture facility that tracks each robot individually. We can also use an overhead projector to project virtual maps and environments over which the robots will operate. The goal of this project is to test and validate various multi-robot and robot swarm applications such as area coverage, hazard localization, formation flight and multi-task completion. These algorithms are connected with real-world applications mainly in disaster response (e.g., flood response, finding skiers trapped under avalanche, search and rescue etc.), pollution clean-up and goods/material transportation. These small lab-scale experiments with the tiny robots will serve as a scaled down validation of how effective (aka efficient, fast, reliable) will be such multi-robot solutions in real-world applications. In corollary, we will also study the interactions of these teams of tiny robots with human supervisors that communicate with them through a computer game based interface. This UG research opportunity is part of a larger project funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).

Students with URM background preferred, in order for the student(s) to get a stipend, totaling up to $8K over the year. Students with strong technical background and progress in the project will be also be eligible for a stipend of up to $8K over the year
