Since its establishment in 1998, the USC Robotic Embedded Systems lab has been active in many areas of robotics research. We are an intellectually curious group with a strong focus on experimental robotics. We occasionally build hardware, but our activities are primarily centered around algorithms and software systems for robots. A common thread through many of our projects is our interest in multi-robot systems and networked robots and an emphasis on planning and optimization. In addition to these areas, we also work on robot learning and robot manipulation.

You can explore our published research in several ways. A comprehensive, searchable list of all our research publications is available, or you can explore further in one of the following ways.
