Welcome to the Cyber-Human-Physical Systems Lab at the University of California, Davis.
Our lab is interested in engineering and understanding collaborative, assured autonomy. We study many topics on the borders of control theory, machine learning, formal methods, and cognitive science. Currently our research focuses on:
