Recursive Algorithm for Motion Primitive Estimation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05)
The need for knowing future manipulator motion arises in several robotics applications, including notification or avoidance of imminent collisions and real-time optimization of velocity commands. This paper presents a ...
Tectonic smoothing and mapping
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-16)
Large-scale mapping has become the key to numerous applications, e.g. simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) for autonomous robots. Despite of the success of many SLAM projects, there are still some challenging ...
Sharing Control Can Increase Excavation Productivity
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-03)
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have demonstrated that the completion time of common excavation tasks is decreased when an operator and an electronic agent share control of the actuator velocity commands. ...
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 ...
Visual arctic navigation: techniques for autonomous agents in glacial environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-06-15)
Arctic regions are thought to be more sensitive to climate change fluctuations, making weather data from these regions more valuable for climate modeling. Scientists have expressed an interest in deploying a robotic sensor ...
Multi-robot assignment and formation control
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-08)
Our research focuses on one of the more fundamental issues in multi-agent, mobile robotics: the formation control problem. The idea is to create controllers that cause robots to move into a predefined formation shape. ...
