RI Seminar -- Alonzo Kelly


This talk will overview the results to date for my PhD thesis in the area of autonomous cross country navigation. The work investigates aspects of perception, planning, localization and control using the tools of complexity and dimensional analysis, experimentation, and simulation. Ideas that emerge are implemented on the HMMWV at CMU on a proof of principle basis. The prototype has achieved unprecedented speeds of 15 km/hr and excursions of 15 km on a local off-road test site.

The talk will overview the subsystems of typical cross country navigators and point to the impact of high speed robust navigation on subsystem requirements.
