• Auditory Evidence Grids 

      Martinson, Eric; Schultz, Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006)
      Sound source localization on a mobile robot can be a difficult task due to a variety of problems inherent to a real environment, including robot ego-noise, echoes, and the transient nature of ambient noise. As a result, ...
    • Auditory Perspective Taking 

      Martinson, Eric; Brock, Derek (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006)
      Auditory perspective taking is imagining being in another’s place, and predicting what they are able to hear and how it will affect their general comprehension. From this knowledge of another’s auditory perspective, a ...
    • Behavior-Grounded Representation of Tool Affordances 

      Stoytchev, Alexander (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
      This paper introduces a novel approach to representing and learning tool affordances by a robot. The tool representation described here uses a behavior-based approach to ground the tool affordances in the behavioral ...
    • Integrated Control for Mobile Manipulation for Intelligent Materials Handling 

      Arkin, Ronald C.; Arya, S.; Book, Wayne John; Cameron, Jonathan M.; Gardner, Warren F.; Lawton, Daryl T.; MacKenzie, Douglas Christopher; Ramanathan, V.; Son, C.; Vachtsevanos, George J.; Ward, Keith Ronald (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1992)
      An integrated control system architecture for mobile manipulators is presented. This architecture incorporates a hybrid reactive/hierarchical structure and partitions the task into macro- and micro-manipulation components. ...
    • Learning of Parameter-Adaptive Reactive Controllers for Robotic Navigation 

      Ramesh, Ashwin; Santamaria, Juan Carlos (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      Reactive controllers are widely used in mobile robots because they are able to achieve successful performance in real-time. However, the configuration of a reactive controller depends highly on the operating conditions of ...
    • A New Heuristic Approach for Dual Control 

      Ram, Ashwin; Santamaria, Juan Carlos (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      Autonomous agents engaged in a continuous interaction with an incompletely known environment face the problem of dual control [Fel’dbaum 1965]. Simply stated, actions are necessary not only for studying the environment, ...
    • Robotic Discovery of the Auditory Scene 

      Martinson, Eric; Schultz, Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
      In this work, we describe an autonomous mobile robotic system for finding and investigating ambient noise sources in the environment. Motivated by the large negative effect of ambient noise sources on robot audition, ...
    • Visualization of Multi-Level Neural-Based Robotic Systems 

      Arkin, Ronald C.; Cervantes-Pérez, Francisco; Peniche, José Francisco; Weitzenfeld, Alfredo (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Autonomous biological systems are very complex in their nature. Their study, through both experimentation and computation, provides a means to understand the underlying mechanisms in living systems while inspiring the ...
