Subterranean Mapping (2007-2012)

    Robots are poised to proliferate in underground civil inspection and mining operations. I took over development of the CaveCrawler mobile robot, which was a platform for research in these areas. CaveCrawler has inspected and mapped many miles of underground mines and tunnels using LIDAR. We also demonstrated use of rescue scout robots for use in disaster situations to locate victims and carry supplies.
