Prior to CSIRO, my research was based on developing multi-robot control algorithms for coordinating robots in highly dynamic environments such as RobCup robot soccer and predator/prey. I also conducted research into allowing robots to conduct stealthy traverses to a goal location in unknown outdoor environments, whilst being monitored by an observer.
The essence of my research revolves around producing repeatable and robust performance of robot systems using minimalist and adaptive approaches. This is particularly challenging in outdoor domains that are subject to changes in ambient conditions affecting sensor and robot performance. Addressing these problems is my current research focus.
- Adaptive and autonomous robots
