ASRL Mission

10 Years of Autonomy

Welcome to the Autonomous Space Robotics Lab at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies. The purpose of ASRL's research is to enable scientific exploration by creating advanced autonomy for space robotics. Currently, planetary exploration is the primary focus of our work, particularly aspects of estimation and control for planetary rovers. There are currently four research threads at ASRL:

  1. Localization and Mapping
  2. Path Planning and Path Tracking
  3. Novel Robotic Concepts
  4. Field Testing

Please explore the People section below to view ongoing research within ASRL.
