Matthew L. ElwinAssistant Professor of Instruction of Mechanical Engineering

My research interests include:

  • Decentralized and distributed control of multi-robot systems, a.k.a. swarm robotics.
  • Algorithms that enable large groups of mobile robots to autonomously estimate an environment while using minimal communication and computational resources.
  • Using several robots to manipulate large objects that cannot be moved by a single robot acting alone.
  • Localization and mapping in uncertain environments with large groups of robots and minimal sensing.
