My big question is how can we move our active electrosensing SensorPod in order to maximize information gain in an unknown the environment. The difficult part is that unlike vision or sonar, the answer is not go as close to the object of interest as possible. It requires some sort of ergonomic control that maximizes time spent in areas of high information. I am using Fisher Information as well as optimal control developed by Lauren Miller to try and solve this question.

Last year, I tackled the problem of Location and Orientation Estimation on our SensorPod. See Publications.
