Giuseppe Loianno

Giuseppe Loianno is an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the Tandon School of Engineering of New York University.

He leads the Agile Robotics and Perception Lab (ARPL) that performs fundamental and applied research in the area of robotics autonomy. The main mission of the lab is to create agile autonomous machines that can navigate all by themselves using only onboard sensors such as in unstructured, and dynamically changing environments and without relying on external infrastructure, such as GPS or motion capture systems. The machines need to be active, they should collaborate with humans and between each other and they need to navigate in the unknown environment extracting the best knowledge from it.
