Welcome to Robotics at UC Merced.

The robotics lab at UC Merced was established in 2007 by Prof. Stefano Carpin. The group investigates topics related to multi-robot systems and robot algorithms. Examples of past and ongoing research include:

  • cooperative multi-robot systems
  • pursuit-evasion games, intruder detection, and search;
  • robot performance evaluation and benchmarking;
  • planning and decision making
  • map merging;
  • grasp planning.

Check our publications page for details. 

The robotics lab is part of CAIS -- the Center for Autonomous and Interactive Systems.
