Navlab: The Carnegie Mellon University Navigation Laboratory
The CMU Navlab group builds computer-controlled vehicles for automated
and assisted driving. Since 1984, we have built a series of robot cars,
vans, SUVs, and buses. The latest in our Navlab family is the Navlab 11,
a robot Jeep Wrangler equipped with a wide variety of sensors for
short-range and mid-range obstacle detection. Current publications and
projects can be found at the official Robotics Institute page Navlab page.
