Section: Scientific Foundations


The meaning of autonomy in the context of mobile robotics covers a large variety of aspects, from the capabilities of moving safely and interacting with the environment, to planning, reasoning and deciding at a high level of abstraction. ARobAS pursues a bottom-up approach with a sustained focus on autonomous navigation and the monitoring of interactions with unknown, variable, and complex environments.

The project team is organized under the headings of two research themesĀ : Perception and autonomous navigation and control . Nonetheless, it matters to keep in mind that the borderline between the themes is porous since several of the associated issues and tools to address them are clearly interdependent and complementary. To highlight this interdependency, we have described in a separate section the transverse issues to the two vertical themes.
