Autonomous Systems and Control Lab (ASCL)

Welcome to ASCL at UA!

We are a research group in the  Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Alabama that specializes in control and autonomous/intelligent systems. We leverage dynamical systems, control theory, and machine learning tools to design and validate control and decision-making algorithms for autonomous/intelligent systems to ensure their safe and efficient operation in challenging scenarios under various uncertainties. Besides theoretical development, we are very interested in implementing and testing our algorithms on aerial/ground vehicles in the real world. 

Some specific research directly we currently focus on include
