Autonomous and Connected Systems (ACS) is a College of Engineering initiative that creates a community of scholars to advance the science and engineering of autonomy, robotics, and the internet of things (IoT). ACS interdisciplinary teams of researchers explore innovative research ideas in these areas and promote technology transfer with IP, educational, and outreach activities. ACS members integrate their research into educational programs at the K-12, undergraduate, and graduate levels, where students gain classroom, real world, and international experiences; as well as access to expert mentors. ACS faculty partner with external academic partners, corporations, and international organizations to promote and advance the current state-of-the-art in autonomy, robotics, and IoT engineering and science.
