Javier Alonso-Mora is an Assistant Professor at the Delft University of Technology, where he leads the Autonomous Multi-Robots Lab. Previously he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) of MIT. Dr. Alonso-Mora received his Ph.D. in robotics from ETH Zurich, in collaboration with Disney Research Zurich.
His main research interest is in navigation, motion planning and control of autonomous mobile robots and vehicles, with a special emphasis in multi-robot systems and robots that interact with other robots and humans in dynamic and uncertain environments. Together with his collaborators, he contributes novel methods and solutions in the areas of motion planning, dynamic vehicle routing, multi-robot coordination, aerial videography, and human-swarm interaction.
Building towards the smart cities of the future, he applies these techniques in various fields, including shared mobility on-demand (ridesharing), autonomous cars, automated factories and aerial vehicles.
“We are working towards a future where millions of robots and autonomous vehicles safely coexist with us, make our cities more efficient, and our lives better”
