Motor Schema-based Formation Control for Multiagent Robot Teams
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)
New reactive behaviors that implement formations in multi-robot teams are presented and evaluated. These motor schemas, or primitive behaviors, for relative positional maintenance are integrated with existing navigational ...
International Governance of Autonomous Military Robots
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011)
New technologies have always been a critical component of military strategy and preparedness. One new technology on the not-too-distant technological horizon is lethal autonomous robotics, which would consist of robotic ...
A Software Tool for the Design of Critical Robot Missions with Performance Guarantees
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03)
Deploying a robot as part of a counter-weapons of mass destruction mission demands that the robotic software operates with high assurance. A unique feature of robotic software development is the need to perform predictably ...
Lethal Autonomous Systems and the Plight of the Non-combatant
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013)
SLAM-Based Spatial Memory for Behavior-Based Robots
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
Knowledge is essential for an autonomous robot to act intelligently when tasked with a mission. With recent leaps of progress, the paradigm of SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) has emerged as an ideal source of ...
The Case for Ethical Autonomy in Unmanned Systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010)
The underlying thesis of research in ethical autonomy for lethal autonomous unmanned systems is that they will potentially be capable of performing more ethically on the battlefield than are human soldiers. In this article ...
The Multiple Dimensions of Action-Oriented Robotic Perception: Fission, Fusion, and Fashion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1991)
Action-oriented perception provides an alternative to traditional high-level image understanding for the roboticist. By channeling sensory perception directly to motor behaviors (sensor fission) without mediating global ...
Affect in Human-Robot Interaction
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014)
More and more, robots are expected to interact with humans in a social, easily understandable manner, which presupposes effective use of robot affect. This chapter provides a brief overview of research advances into this ...
Learning Behavioral Parameterization Using Spatio-Temporal Case-Based Reasoning
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
This paper presents an approach to learning an optimal behavioral parameterization in the framework of a Case-Based Reasoning methodology for autonomous navigation tasks. It is based on our previous work on a behavior-based ...
Lek Behavior as a Model for Multi-Robot Systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-01-01)
Lek behavior is a biological mechanism used by male birds to attract mates by forming a group. This project explores the use of a biological behavior found in many species of birds to form leks to guide the creation of ...
