Unmanned Autonomous Systems & Robotics

Welcome to the Home of UASR at ODU!


A quick glance at the newswire is all it takes to see that autonomous and robotic systems are becoming ubiquitous. From internet bots to remotely piloted aircraft, autonomy in software and hardware systems is finding a growing presence in our daily lives and making an impact on a global scale. At ODU, the engineering disciplines are advancing technologies that will enable increasingly autonomous land, sea, air, and space systems. Within the College, a group of leading engineering researchers form the Unmanned Autonomous Systems and Robotics (UAS) Cluster. The UAS cluster promotes research, and develops undergraduate and graduate curricula, in unmanned systems, autonomy, and robotics with the objective to extend the impact of ODU's research in these areas.
