My research focus is on practical robotic solutions for the real
world. My primary project is the designing robot solutions to solve
problems faced in agriculture. I lead the ARC Robotics for Zero Tillage
project which is looking at replacing large, heavy manned tractors with
small, light autonomous robots to increase productivity and reduce
impact on the environment. I am also part of the Skippy robot kangaroo
project, OpenRatSLAM system, and wireless recording system.
previous position I worked on the Thinking System project which
investigated navigation through real and conceptual spaces. In this
project I led the iRat (Intelligent Rat Animat Technology) project,
designed a flight arena for Bees, a wireless neural recording system for
Rats and worked on the robot navigation systems.
during my PhD, I led the RoboRoos, a RoboCup soccer team that competed
in the RoboCup Small Size League in the USA, Japan, Italy, and Portugal.more...
