  • Robot

Vijay Kumar mainly focuses on Robot, Control theory, Mobile robot, Control engineering and Artificial intelligence. Vijay Kumar combines subjects such as Swarm behaviour, Distributed computing and Control theory with his study of Robot. His studies in Control theory integrate themes in fields like Kinematics and GRASP.

His Mobile robot study also includes fields such as

  • Control system, which have a strong connection to Motion control and Human–computer interaction,
  • Decentralised system which connect with Convergence. His Control engineering research integrates issues from Motion, Aerodynamics, Collision avoidance, Simulation and Grippers. The Artificial intelligence study combines topics in areas such as Work, Field and Computer vision.

His most cited work include:

  • Minimum snap trajectory generation and control for quadrotors (1053 citations)
  • Modeling and control of formations of nonholonomic mobile robots (1003 citations)
  • A vision-based formation control framework (972 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Vijay Kumar focuses on Robot, Artificial intelligence, Control theory, Control engineering and Mobile robot. The study incorporates disciplines such as Distributed computing and Trajectory in addition to Robot. His research combines Computer vision and Artificial intelligence.

His study in Control theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Kinematics, Nonholonomic system and Motion control. Vijay Kumar works in the field of Control engineering, focusing on Control theory in particular. His Mobile robot study frequently links to other fields, such as Real-time computing.
