    • Data-Driven Generation of Low-Complexity Control Programs 

      Delmotte, Florent; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Austin, Adam (Georgia Institute of TechnologyNonpareil Publishers, 2004)
      In this paper we study the problem of generating control programs, i.e. strings of symbolic descriptions of control-interrupt pairs (or modes) from input-output data. In particular, we take the point of view that such ...
    • From Empirical Data to Multi-Modal Control Procedures 

      Delmotte, Florent; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-Verlag, 2005)
      In this paper we study the problem of generating control programs, i.e. strings of symbolic descriptions of control-interrupt pairs (or modes) from input-output data. In particular, we take the point of view that such ...
    • Linguistic Control of Mobile Robots 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2001-10)
      In this paper we study the interactions between symbolic computer programs and mechanical devises, e.g. mobile robots. We show that by using motion description languages for generating continuous motions from symbolic input ...
    • MDLn: A Motion Description Language for Networked Systems 

      Martin, Patrick; de la Croix, Jean-Pierre; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-12)
      In this paper we extend the definition of a Motion Description Language (MDL) to networked systems. This new construction (MDLn) supports inter-agent specification rules as well as desired network topologies, enabling ...
    • Motion Description Languages for Multi-Modal Control in Robotics 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-Verlag, 2002-12)
      In this paper we outline how motion description languages provide useful tools when designing multi-modal control laws in robotics. Of particular importance is the introduction of the description length as a measure of how ...
    • Motion Programs for Multi-Agent Control: From Specification to Execution 

      Martin, Patrick; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-07)
      This paper explores the process of turning high-level motion programs into executable control code for multi-agent systems. Specifically, we use a modified Motion Description Language (MDL) for networked systems that ...
    • Motion Programs for Puppet Choreography and Control 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Murphey, Todd D.; Ludwig, Jon (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics EngineersSpringer Verlag, 2007-04)
      This paper presents a motion description language (MDLp) for specifying and encoding autonomous puppetry plays in a manner that is faithful to the way puppetry choreography is currently formulated. In particular, MDLp ...
    • Multi-Modal Control Using Adaptive Motion Description Languages 

      Mehta, Tejas R.; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2007-11-04)
      In this paper, we address the problem of adaptively enriching motion description languages for multi-modal control by systematically enlarging the set of available modes. This problem is formulated as an optimal control ...
    • On the Specification Complexity of Linguistic Control Procedures 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyNonpareil Publishers, 2002)
      In this paper we combine the ideas of trigger based hybrid systems with that of motion description languages in order to show how continuous machines should interpret and operate on computer generated symbolic (linguistic) ...
    • On The Structural Complexity of the Motion Description Language MDLe 

      Hristu-Varsakelis, Dimotrios; Egerstedt, Magnus B.; Krishnaprasad, P. S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2003-12)
      As modern control theory attempts to elucidate the complexity of systems that combine differential equations and event-driven logic, it must overcome challenges having to do with limited expressive power as well as ...
    • Optimization of Multi-Agent Motion Programs with Applications to Robotic Marionettes 

      Martin, Patrick; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-Verlag, 2009-04)
      In this paper, we consider the problem of generating optimized, executable control code from high-level, symbolic specifications. In particular, we construct symbolic control programs using strings from a motion description ...
