Project:  Coordination and Control of Teams of Unmanned Vehicles
Disciplines:  Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Robotics
Mentor:  Amir Rahmani, (JPL), Amir.Rahmani@jpl.nasa.gov, Phone: (818) 393-7368
Background:  JPL is leading a number of projects in coordination and control of teams of unmanned vehicle. These efforts involve various levels of autonomy needs from single vehicle state estimation and control to multi-agent relative localization, task allocation, coordination and control.
Description:  The student will assist in development and testing of tools and algorithms for the multi-agent cooperative control. This may include literature review, software development for tools such as the mission planning and execution framework, prototyping control and estimation algorithms, building and interfacing with multi-agent simulation environments, and managing experiments to evaluate the performance of existing algorithms and software. The student will work closely with a JPL team of autonomy experts.
