      Chandrababu, S.; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
      Robot systems are increasing in complexity. Trying to diagnose a robot that is non-functional or exhibiting suboptimal performance can be a major challenge. A framework for plug-n-play addition of diagnostics to modules ...
    • Agent Negotiation of Target Distribution Enhancing System Survivability 

      Xiong, Ning; Christensen, Henrik; Svensson, Per (Georgia Institute of TechnologyWiley-Blackwell, 2007-12)
      This article proposes an agent negotiation model for target distribution across a set of geographically dispersed sensors. The key idea is to consider sensors as autonomous agents that negotiate over the division of tasks ...
    • Announcing ITID 2.0 

      Bar, François; Best, Michael L. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyUniversity of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, 2008)

      Powers, Joshua (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-24)
      The author outlines how big data software can be utilized to speed up health analytics software when faced with big data problems. Specific data analytics from the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) ...
    • Applying domain knowledge to slam using virtual measurements 

      Trevor, Alexander J. B.; Rogers, John G.; Nieto-Granda, Carlos; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
      Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) aims to estimate the maximum likelihood map and robot pose based on a robot’s control and sensor measurements. In structured environments, such as human environments, we might ...
    • Assessment of Man-portable Robots for Law Enforcement Agencies 

      Lundberg, Carl; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAssociation for Computing Machinery, 2007-08)
      This project has involved testing a Packbot Scout within a SWAT-unit for five months. This was done to explore the tactical benefits of the system and to test the robot's technical performance with end users. Another ...
    • Attentional Landmark Selection for Visual SLAM 

      Frintrop, Simone; Jensfelt, Patric; Christensen, Henrik I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2006-10)
      In this paper, we introduce a new method to automatically detect useful landmarks for visual SLAM. A biologically motivated attention system detects regions of interest which “pop-out” automatically due to strong contrasts ...
