Robotics Research

I researched field robotics in the Autonomous Systems Technologies and Instrumentation Laboratory under the mentorship of Dr. Srikanth Saripalli during my undergraduate studies.

I pursued a variety of robotics research projects including indoor localization, autonomous aerial surveying and mapping with fixed wing UAVs, and underwater imaging and mapping with an AUV. Most recently I experimentally evaluated sampling path strategies for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The results of this research work was presented at ICRA 2012, and the presentation given is shown below
