Note for Prospective Ph.D. Students
Our group is seeking new members who have interests in:

  • small-scale robotics and embedded systems
  • heterogeneous sensor networks
  • control theory, hybrid dynamical systems theory, optimization, and the theory of stochastic processes.

We have no influence over departmental admissions decisions, so you will need to apply through the usual process. However, it can't hurt to contact current Ph.D. students Sam Burden or Andrew Godbehere to discuss your research interests.

(:title MAST in Professor Sastry's Group at Berkeley:)

Welcome to Professor Sastry's web page for the Micro Autonomous Systems and Technology (MAST) project!

An interdisciplinary and multi-university research team is developing a robotic sensor network for deployment in disaster areas. By coupling novel small-scale robots with recent work in networked and embedded systems we aim to create a heterogeneous mobile sensor network capable of autonomously navigating through unstructured adversarial environments and relaying useful information to a human operator.

Note for Prospective Ph.D. Students

  • small-scale robotics, embedded systems, and heterogeneous sensor networks;
  • control theory, hybrid dynamical systems theory, optimization, and the theory of stochastic processes.
