    Title: Active Robot Perception for Understanding the Natural World

    Abstract: Robot information gathering has transformed the way we take measurements of the natural world in oceans, lakes, and underground environments. This talk will highlight key areas of improvement in using measurements of the environment to inform robot autonomy. The talk will focus on improving the efficiency and usability of these systems, combining these systems with the uncertainty in the robots pose which is characteristic of these environments, and tying the end scientific goal directly to the actions the robot performs.
