The Distributed Autonomy Lab focuses on multiagent/multirobot coordination and user interfaces. Research projects study multiagent/multirobot autonomy, teaming with humans and user interfaces and their effect on trust. Major thrusts include Operator Multiagent Teaming for Safety applications (OMTS) and Pervasive Systems for Elder Care (PSEC).
Dr Anderson’s robotics lab is 1200 sq feet and is housed in a newly (2009) built science and engineering building. The lab is equipped with both student desk space and a dedicated test arena. A full array of bench equipment for testing and integration is available on a workbench with exhaust hood and safety stations.
