  1. 1. Path-Connectivity of the Free Space : Caging and Path Existence

    Author : Anastasiia Varava; Danica Kragic; Alberto Rodriguez; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robotics; Manipulation; Caging; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : The notion of configuration space is a tool that allows to reason aboutan object’s mobility in a unified manner. The problem of verifying path non-existence can be considered as dual to path planning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Representation and Learning for Robotic Grasping, Caging, and Planning

    Author : Johannes Andreas Stork; Danica Kragic; Wolfram Burgard; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Grasping; Caging; Planning; State Representation; Optimization; Topology; Manipulation; Reinforcement Learning; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : Robots need to grasp, handle, and manipulate objects, navigate their environment, and understand the state of the world around them. Like all artificial intelligence agents, they have to make predictions, formulate goals, reason about actions, and make plans. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multi-Agent Mission Planning and Execution for Small Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

    Author : Özer Özkahraman; Petter Ögren; João Tasso de Figueiredo Borges de Sousa; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Underwater vehicles; collaborative; robotics; auv; navigation; coverage; search; slam; graph-slam; communication; control barrier functions; control; swarms; caging; capture; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : Our planet is mostly covered in water, most of it still unexplored.In order to understand our environment better, oceanographers have been mapping and monitoring these waters using ship-mounted sensors and wired vehicles with limited range compared to the vastness of the oceans.

  4. 4. Flexible Robot to Object Interactions Through Rigid and Deformable Cages

    Author : Alejandro Marzinotto; Danica Kragic; Henrik Gordon Petersen; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; planning; control; perception; caging; cage; grasping; multi-agent; robot; robotic; knot; knotting; behaviour trees; behavior trees; action scheduling; RRT; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study the problem of robotic interaction with objects from a flexible perspective that complements the rigid force-closure approach. In a flexible interaction the object is not firmly bound to the robot (immobilized), which leads to many interesting scenarios. READ MORE

  5. 5. Use and environmental impact of antifouling paints in the Baltic Sea

    Author : Maria Alexandra Bighiu; Ann-Kristin Eriksson-Wiklund; Bethanie Carney Almroth; Manu Soto; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; boats; antifouling paints; metals; XRF; in situ; caging; Theodoxus fluviatilis; toxicity; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Biocide-based antifouling (AF) paints are the most common method for preventing biofouling, i.e. the growth of algae, barnacles and other organisms on boat hulls. AF paints for leisure boats are predominantly based on copper (Cu) as the main biocide, with zinc (Zn) present as a pigment and stabilizer. READ MORE
