Welcome to ASLab
You are kindly welcomed to the UPM Autonomous Systems Laboratory website. This site contains information about our research group: projects, activities, people, publications, courses, etc. The focus of our research are Autonomous Systems, i.e. systems that operate by themselves without the need of external intervention. Autonomous systems are useful in many real-life situations for economical, technical or safety reasons. Image
In ASLab we develop science and technology for autonomous systems for the real world, so they will free humans from supervising them once they're up and running. They will self-manage to fulfill our objectives.

The ASLab Research Programme contains several activities in theoretical autonomy (ASys), autonomous systems architectures (SOUL) and autonomous systems software and process frameworks (ICa).

It's our mission not only to theorize on autonomy but to develop real autonomous systems and tools for autonomous systems engineering.

ASLab Research Lines:

  • Integrated control architectures
  • Model-based control systems
  • Ontologies for autonomous systems
  • Development processes for complex controllers
  • Reusable control components
  • Real-time middleware and platforms for distributed control
  • Rettargetability of embedded control components
  • Technology of systems self-awareness
  • Philosophical implications of the technology of self-aware machines
