The Vehicle Autonomy and Intelligence Lab (VAIL) focuses on developing methodologies that enhance the autonomy and intelligence of robotic systems such as unmanned ground, aerial, and aquatic vehicles. Our research interests include planning, learning, and coordination techniques for autonomous systems involving single or multiple robots with potential applications in environmental monitoring, surveillance and security, search and rescue, as well as smart transportation.

VAIL is affiliated with the Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering (ISE) in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering (SICE) at Indiana University - Bloomington.
