Welcome to the website of the Autonomous Systems Lab (ASL) led by Prof. Roland Siegwart. The Autonomous Systems Lab was founded in 1996 at EPFL Lausanne and it has been part of the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS) at ETH Zurich since 2006.
Our mission and dedication is to create robots and intelligent systems that are able to autonomously operate in complex and diverse environments. We are interested in the mechatronic design and control of systems that autonomously adapt to different situations and cope with our uncertain and dynamic daily environment. We are fascinated by novel robot concepts that are best adapted for acting on the ground, in the air and in the water. We are furthermore keen to give them the intelligence to autonomously navigate in challenging environments. This includes novel methods and tools for perception, abstraction, mapping and path planning.
We welcome visitors to explore our research and education pages as well as students from all engineering disciplines, especially ME, EE and CS, to join our Master Program Master of Science ETH in Robotics, Systems and Control and to participate in one of our diverse student-projects.
