Autonomous Robots and Control Systems

Welcome to the main webpage of the Autonomous Robots and Control Systems (ARCS) Laboratory at the University of California Riverside (UCR)!

The ARCS Laboratory focuses on fundamental robotics research to enable robust, adaptive and resilient planning and control of teams of legged and aerial robots in dynamic and uncertain environments. The lab is directed by Dr. Konstantinos Karydis. Lab members consist of students with background in engineering and computer science.
