Description

Quantum robotics is an emerging engineering and scientific research discipline that explores the application of quantum mechanics, quantum computing, quantum algorithms, and related fields to robotics. This work broadly surveys advances in our scientific understanding and engineering of quantum mechanisms and how these developments are expected to impact the technical capability for robots to sense, plan, learn, and act in a dynamic environment. It also discusses the new technological potential that quantum approaches may unlock for sensing and control, especially for exploring and manipulating quantum-scale environments. Finally, the work surveys the state of the art in current implementations, along with their benefits and limitations, and provides a roadmap for the future.

John Heywood is a Professorial Fellow Emeritus of Trinity College Dublin-University of Dublin. He was given the best research publication award of the Division for the Professions of the American Educational Research Association for Engineering Education: Research and Development in the Curriculum and Instruction in 2006. Recently, he published The Assessment of Learning in Engineering Education: Practice and Policy. Previous studies among his 150 publications have included ""Learning, Adaptability and Change; The Challenge for Education and Industry,"" and co-authored Analysing Jobs, a study of engineers at work. He is a Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education, a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Engineers of Ireland. In 2016 he received the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice award from the Pope for his services to education.

Benjamin Shih is a Ph.D. student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, San Diego. He holds an M.S. and B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University (2013) and has been a research assistant at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. His main area of research is soft robotics, an intersection of control, materials, and cognitive science. Ben led discussion of quantum control in the Quantum Robotics Group.
Tanay Mehta is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Northeastern University. He holds a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Southern California. His research is focused on the theoretical aspects of computer science and the fundamental limits of computation. He is interested in the role of pseudo-randomness in complexity theory and cryptography. Tanay served as the lead for quantum information theory discussions in the Quantum Robotics Group.
Alex Mitev holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Arizona. His main research interests are in statistical modeling, model order reduction, machine learning, and dynamic programming. He has published several papers analyzing problems of timing analysis, macro-modeling, and the impact of process variations for VLSI circuits. Alex led discussions of quantum circuits in the Quantum Robotics Group.
Zhiyang Ong is an Electrical Engineering Ph.D. student at Texas A&M University. He received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California and his Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) from the University of Adelaide. He has interned at the Institute of Microelectronics and Bioinformatics Institute in Singapore, Symantec Corporation in Santa Monica, California, and the University of Trento in Trento, Italy. He has also studied at the University of Verona and National Taiwan University. He is a student member of IEEE and ACM and is a member of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu. Zhiyang led discussions of quantum modeling checking in the Quantum Robotics Group.
