Welcome to OCEAN LABTM

Our mission is to create Swarm Tools(TM): groups of autonomous vehicles that can be deployed with the convenience of single vehicles.

Our approach is based on coordinating large numbers of vehicles using the physical principles of spontaneous organization found in nature. We want to harness the potential of using dissipation as a tool for dynamic organization in distributed systems. We are exploring this as a new path for manipulating systems that are too complex for other control methodologies.
