Cooperative Autonomous Robots for Hazardous
Welcome to the Robots for Hazardous Environments Group at Rice University.
The focus of the group is on the study of fault detection and fault
tolerance for robot systems used in hazardous environments. The environments
include space applications and also environmental restoration of hazardous
waste sites. The group has been a member of the Cross-Cutting and Advanced
Technology Program at Sandia National Labs. Currently, the group is working
with Mechanical Technology, Inc on a DOE-funded project related to fault
detection of hydaulic manipulators. The group includes Prof. Ian Walker
of Clemson University who was formerly at Rice University.
