Dr. Zool’s research interests are in the control of autonomous systems, robot motion planning and coordination, along with applied combinatorial optimization. The following are some current areas of focus:
- Robot motion planning: methods for planning robot motion to efficiently complete complex tasks.
- Planning under uncertainty: planning and sensing for operation in unknown environments.
- Persistent monitoring and scene reconstruction: monitoring and building real-time maps for complex 3D environments.
- Future transportation systems: coordinating and dispatching vehicles for ride-sharing and urban transportation.
- Human-robot interaction: coordinating robots to work with humans in task specification and collaborative assembly.
- Distributed and submodular optimization: Collective decision making strategies for objectives that exhibit diminishing returns.
- Dynamic vehicle routing: efficient dispatching robots to respond to task requests in real-time.
- Other areas of interest include informative path planning, task allocation, formation control, consensus/rendezvous and ocean sampling.
