The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Laboratory (RASL) supports research activities into the design and operation of unmanned and automated systems.

The goals of this lab include:

  • Application and characterization of machine-learning processes for autonomous system perception.
  • Performing complex behaviors using unmanned systems in the ground, maritime and aerial domains.
  • Design and analysis of unmanned system technologies.


  • Minion Autonomous Research Vessel (16-foot USV)
  • SRS Fusion UUV
  • Direct access to the VICON Motion Capture System
