Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Robotic Swarm Autonomy This research develops behaviors and controllers for multi-agent, heterogeneous, robotic swarms. It will enable vehicles to move, orient, and collaborate in complex missions with limited human supervision. The focus is on relatively small, man-packable ground and aerial robots. Particular interests are in highly efficient, robust, and adaptive methods that exhibit excellent properties with limited computational power, storage, and bandwidth. Opportunities exist in the following areas: • Robotic autonomy in mixed-initiative operations • Collaboration of small robots in communications-limited environments • Fusion of information from heterogeneous sensors for robot missions • Multi-robot object tracking and recognition • Optimization of complex algorithms for computationally frugal platforms • Experimentation and validation methods in robotic field tests Keywords: robotic control, swarm control, robotic vision, human-robot interaction, autonomous vehicle, mapping and localization

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at our Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government and Private Industry customers’ laboratories and research facilities worldwide.

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
