Mobile robots equipped with various sensors can gather data at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales and resolution. Over the years, our group has developed autonomous surface, ground and aerial vehicles for finding and localizing radio tagged animals. Recently, we've also developed robotic systems for yield estimation and farm monitoring. I will give an overview of these projects as well as some of the fundamental algorithmic problems we studied along the way.
