• Assessment of an RFID System for Animal Tracking 

      Balch, Tucker; Feldman, Adam; Wilson, Wesley Proctor (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004)
      We evaluated the Multispectral Solutions, Inc. RFID system in several experiments to assess its utility in tracking animals as they move around their habitat. The system consists of tags which transmit a signal and ...
    • Behavioral Diversity in Learning Robot Teams 

      Balch, Tucker (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      This work investigates the origins of behavioral diversity in learning robot teams. Behavioral diversity refers to the extent to which agents assume distinct behavioral roles in a group. Most research in multi-robot teams ...
    • Clay: Integrating Motor Schemas and Reinforcement Learning 

      Balch, Tucker (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      Clay is an evolutionary architecture for autonomous robots that integrates motor schema-based control and reinforcement learning. Robots utilizing Clay benefit from the real-time performance of motor schemas in ...
    • Dynamic Scheduling for Obstacle Avoidance in Mobile Robots 

      Balch, Tucker; Forbes, Harold C.; Schwan, Karsten (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993)
      In robotics applications the speed at which a task may be completed is often limited by computation rather than actuator or sensor throughput. This research concerns the efficient threads-based implementation of motor ...
    • Learning Roles: Behavioral Diversity in Robot Teams 

      Balch, Tucker (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      This paper describes research investigating behavioral specialization in learning robot teams. Each agent is provided a common set of skills (motor schema-based behavioral assemblages) from which it builds a task-achie ...
    • Motor Schema-based Formation Control for Multiagent Robot Teams 

      Balch, Tucker; Arkin, Ronald C. (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 ...
