Brief Description            

We are seeking are searcher with a keen interest in performing cutting-edge research in autonomous vehicles (AVs) in collaboration with MIT.

The project is studies multi-vehicle coordinated path and tour planning with bounded risk of collision. Several technical challenges arise from the uncertain environment in which AVs operate, such as road and weather conditions, errors in perception and sensory input data, and uncertainty in communication channel between vehicles.A robust AV control algorithm should account for different sources of uncertainty and should generate control policies that are quantifiably safe.Algorithms that respect precise safety measures can also assist policy makers to address legislative issues related to AVs, such as insurance policies and road network usage along with non-autonomous vehicles.
