Beyond Geometric Path Planning: Paradigms and Algorithms for Modern Robotics
The development of algorithms to quickly compute collision-free paths for high dimensional systems was a major achievement in the field of motion planning in the 2000s. Despite this progress, recent advances in affordable ...
Vision-based place categorization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-18)
In this thesis we investigate visual place categorization by combining successful global image descriptors with a method of visual attention in order to automatically detect meaningful objects for places. The idea behind ...
A Network-based Approach for Assessing Co-Operating Manned and Unmanned Systems (MUMS)
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-09)
Traditionally, robots have been programmed to do precisely what their human operators instruct them to do, but more recently, they have become more sophisticated, intelligent, and autonomous. Once they reach a sufficiently ...
Navigation among movable obstacles in unknown environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-04-05)
This work presents a new class of algorithms that extend the domain of Navigation Among Movable Obstacles (NAMO) to unknown environments. Efficient real-time algorithms for solving NAMO problems even when no initial ...
Scalable online decentralized smoothing and mapping
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-04-04)
Many applications for field robots can benefit from large numbers of robots, especially applications where the objective is for the robots to cover or explore a region. A key enabling technology for robust autonomy in these ...
