Multirobot Coordination: From High-level Specification to Correct Execution
Using a group of robots in place of a single complex robot to accomplish a task has many benefits, including simplified system repair, less down time, and lower cost. Combining heterogeneous groups of these multi-robot ...
Transformations and Frontiers in Robot Motion and Manipulation
Robotics is undergoing three transformations, which are changing our research focus and opening doors to new applications. The need for robotic manipulation in unstructured environments, human-robot collaborative systems, ...
Turning Assistive Machines into Assistive Robots
For decades, the potential for automation—in particular, in the form of smart wheelchairs—to aid those with motor or cognitive impairments, has been recognized. It is a paradox that often the more severe a person's motor ...
Efficient Lifelong Machine Learning
Lifelong learning is a key characteristic of human intelligence, largely responsible for the variety and complexity of our behavior. This process allows us to rapidly learn new skills by building upon and continually ...
Risky Robotics: Developing a Practical Solution for Stochastic Optimal Control
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-15)
Risk is a ubiquitous aspect of control and path planning for robots operating in unstructured real‐world environments. Nevertheless, humans still far surpass robots in their ability to evaluate complex tradeoffs under ...
Multi‐Robot Systems for Monitoring and Controlling Large Scale Environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-22)
Groups of aerial, ground, and sea robots working collaboratively have the potential to transform the way we sense and interact with our environment at large scales. They can serve as eyes‐in‐the‐sky for environmental ...
