About ASIM

The Autonomous Systems and Intelligent Machines (ASIM) Laboratory was established in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Virginia Tech to conduct research on autonomy from an intelligent controls and dynamical systems perspective. The goal is to develop intelligent machines, such as robots, vehicles, and electromechanical mechanisms, which can operate either autonomously or semi-autonomously in coordination and interface with humans to perform useful tasks. For example, perception from sensors, sensor fusion techniques, connectivity through communications, and advanced controls and learning algorithms are used to create intelligent coordinated mobile robots and vehicles. We also attempt to learn from biological systems and human brain functions, through signal processing, to mimic intelligent motor control.
