We tackle challenges in the field of robotics including autonomy, navigation of difficult environments, and localization.
Navigation & Control Systems
We help autonomous systems better understand and move through their environment.
Our team applies advanced machine learning techniques to help mobile robots become smarter and more efficient.
NASA TechLeap Team QEOBS (Quantum Earth OBServatory): Quantum Machine Learning Enhanced Sensor Combination for Earth Observation
We aim to demonstrate the capabilities of classical, quantum and hybrid machine learning onboard a CubeSat. With our array of sensors we are able to evaluate quantum & classical machine learning approaches on earth observation tasks, including atmospheric gravity wave measurements or multispectral image classification and segmentation. We seek to demonstrate how on-board data processing and machine learning result in reduced downlink bandwidth.
Team QEOBS has been awarded with the NASA TechLeap Prize via the Autonomous Observation Challenge. Winners annouced here.

Team MoonrAIders was a competitor in the NASA Centennial Challenges Space Robotics Challenge Phase 2. Our team is made up of interdisciplinary members coming from fields such as machine learning, computer vision and robotics. We have members from over 7 countries and 9 institutions. Together we are excited to tackle the challenge of developing simulated rovers to find resources on the Moon.
For more information on the NASA Centennial Challenges Space Robotics Phase 2 Competition visit their site here. Team MoonrAIders has submitted for the Qualification Round in January 2021 and was one of 22 finalists teams that made it into the Competition Round.
Team MoonrAIders has completed the competition round of Phase 2 in September 2021 and looks forward to sharing results and publications of the work. Press release here

Special thanks to the program that brought us together
Our team was formed through the relationships we built at the Frontier Development Lab an applied artificial intelligence research lab at NASA Ames hosted by the SETI Institute and developed and operated by Trillium Technologies. This research program created the lifelong friendships that allowed this team to develop. Applications are open for the 2021 program (https://frontierdevelopmentlab.org/)
