Electric Outdoors Robot

This short video shows early work at Essex University mobile robots (circa 1998). Working on outside robots is particularly challenging as the environment is unpredictable (natural and non-instrumented) and the changing conditions challenge all the sensing and control mechanisms). The original iEG group were Dr Martin Colley, Dr Graham Clarke, Dr John Standeven, Mr Paul Chernett and Prof Victor Callaghan. In this clip you can see Prof Hani Hagras (then a PhD student!) demonstrating his PhD fuzzy controller work to his PhD supervisors – Vic and Martin).
