Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics


The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics (LAMOR), directed by Prof. Ivan Petrović of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, has a long tradition in research of advanced control strategies and estimation techniques for a variety of applications with a strong emphasis on autonomous navigation of ground and aerial robots in unknown and dynamic environments. Our methodology relies on a strong coupling between theoretical research, algorithm development, experimental evaluations, and a healthy dose of serendipity. LAMOR's research activity is organized around three major axes: Motion Planning and Control, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, and Detection and Tracking of Moving Objects. Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art ground and aerial robotic platforms, advanced perception sensors and a motion capture covered arena.

The project deals with vehicle development for CBRNe conditions, that is nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological and explosive threats.

The work of LAMOR relates to the development of algorithms for the autonomy of the vehicle developed by DOK-ING. This is particularly important with regards to heavy work conditions, such as fire or radioactive contamination. For example, in the case of communication failure between the operator and the vehicle itself, the vehicle should autonomously return to the area from where it started.
