The Autonomous and Unmanned Vehicle Systems Laboratory (AUVSL) was founded by Professor William (Robert) Norris in 2017.

Here, we tackle the problems in the world of robotics and autonomous systems. By combining the passion of students with industry knowledge, the AUVSL is making contributions in the fields with which our projects intersect. We are currently have projects planned for land, air, and even underwater autonomous platforms. We invite you to take a look at our team and the projects we work on.
