I grew up in Iowa, and unfortunately I will reinforce some stereotypes as my high school was in the middle of the corn field. I have since lived in Michigan, Los Angeles, Boston (twice), and now C'Ville.

The age of autonomous mobile systems is dawning -- from autonomous cars to household robots to aerial drones -- and they are expected to transform multiple industries and have significant impact on the US economy. Through wireless coordination, these systems create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
The approach is to develop a framework for joint modeling and analysis of motion and communication in order to find provably safe coordination paths. See the link to the NSF abstract.
