  • Autonomous Driving Cars and Racecars

    Driverless cars and driver-assisted vehicles are becoming prevalent in today's transportation systems. Companies such as TESLA, Audi, and Google are among the leaders in this new era of the automotive industry. Autonomous cars use a variety of techniques…

  • Rovers and Wheeled Explorers

    In planetary explorations or rescue missions in devastated areas, velocity of task execution must be traded for robustness to asperities of terrains, or debris–strewn lands. Wheeled or legged robotic locomotion depends heavily on the characteristics of the terrain. In fact, e.g., Martian explorers Spirit and Opportunity traveled at max. 180 m/h speed, on an average mission length of 100 meters…
