      In this paper, we report on the integration challenges of the various component technologies developed towards the establishment of a framework for deploying an adaptive system of heterogeneous robots for urban surveillance. ...
    • Adaptive triangular mesh generation of self-configuring robot swarms 

      Lee, Geunho; Chong, Nak Young; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
      We address the problem of dispersing a large number of autonomous mobile robots toward building wireless ad hoc sensor networks performing environmental monitoring and control. For the purpose, we propose the adaptive ...
    • Adding diagnostics to intelligent service robots 

      Chandrababu, S.; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
      Robot systems are increasing in complexity. Trying to diagnose a robot that is non-functional or exhibiting suboptimal performance can be a major challenge. A framework for plug-n-play addition of diagnostics to modules ...
    • Affect in Human-Robot Interaction 

      Arkin, Ronald C.; Moshkina, Lilia (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014)
      More and more, robots are expected to interact with humans in a social, easily understandable manner, which presupposes effective use of robot affect. This chapter provides a brief overview of research advances into this ...
    • Agent Negotiation of Target Distribution Enhancing System Survivability 

      Xiong, Ning; Christensen, Henrik; Svensson, Per (Georgia Institute of TechnologyWiley-Blackwell, 2007-12)
      This article proposes an agent negotiation model for target distribution across a set of geographically dispersed sensors. The key idea is to consider sensors as autonomous agents that negotiate over the division of tasks ...
