About Lars Karlsson

Lars Karlsson is a professor in computer science within the Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at the Schoool of Science and Technology. He does research about robotics and artificial intelligence with a focus on planning. This includes how a robot can combine task and motion planning, how a network of sensors and robots can be configured to solve a task, and how robots can adapt their plans to human activities.

Lars Karlsson is assisting director of AASS with responsibilities for undergraduate education in computer science, and is program responsible for the engineering program in computer science and the program for simulation and game technology.
