Our main interests are in the areas of decentralized control, collaborative and heterogeneous multi-robot systems, and blockchain for distributed robotic systems.
Our research focuses in localization and mapping in dense urban environments, mapping of unstructured environments, computational offloading, and hardware accelerators for ROS.
RAICAM, a EU-funded MSCA Doctoral Training Network, aims to train a cohort of 10 PhD students to work on the next generation of mobile robots for inspection and maintenance of industrial facilities.
