Professor Martinez is currently working on using nonlinear control techniques for collision free navigation and control of a fleet of mobile robots.  The current application of interest is on precision agriculture and sustainable urban development. Professor Martinez is currently working on using nonlinear control techniques for collision free navigation and control of a fleet of mobile robots (UAV and UGV). Past contributions have been focused on modeling and control of mobile robots, both in terms of attitude stabilization of aerial robots, such as the global positioning of air and ground robots.

Currently Funded Research
Nonlinear control applied to cooperative robot navigation
