Lunar Lab @ Georgia Tech


The Lu’s Navigation and Autonomous Robotics (Lunar) Lab at Georgia Tech studies problems related to perception and navigation for robots and autonomous systems in ground, air, and space applications. The lab’s primary goal is to enable robotic systems to operate autonomously in highly unstructured environments under harsh sensing conditions for tasks including search and rescue, daily housework, scientific exploration and discovery. The main research areas of the lab include computer vision, machine learning, deep learning, estimation, and probabilistic inference.
