Bakgrunn og aktiviteter
Prof. Dr. Kostas Alexis conducts research in the domain of resilient robotic autonomy. Through his studies he has examined the potential of autonomous systems to navigate extreme environments by presenting resourcefulness, robustness and redundancy. His research areas include the domains of robot control, path planning, and Simultaneous Localization And Mapping, while across these disciplines a holistic approach is taken to facilitate enhanced resilient as demonstrated through field robotics. He has been the PI in major international grants sucha s the DARPA Subterranean Challenge and his funding portfolio includes grants from US sources (e.g., DARPA, NSF, DOE, USDA), EU (e.g., Horizon 2020 programs), as well as the Norwegian Research Council.
