  1. 1. Coordination, Consensus and Communication in Multi-robot Control Systems

    Author : Alberto Speranzon; Karl Henrik Johansson; George J. Pappas; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-robot Coordination; Intelligent Control; Control under Communication Constraints; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Analysis, design and implementation of cooperative control strategies for multi-robot systems under communication constraints is the topic of this thesis. Motivated by a rapidly growing number of applications with networked robots and other vehicles, fundamental limits on the achievable collaborative behavior are studied for large teams of autonomous agents.

  2. 2. On Robot Control using Range Sensors : with Special Reference to Active Uncertainty Reduction

    Author : Bernt Nilsson; Aarne Halme; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robot Gripping and Docking; Gripper-Object Feedback; Non-contact Sensing; Laser Ranging; Flexible Arm; Mobile Robot; Probing; Dual Control; LQG-Feedback;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the problem of positioning robots relative to objects in the surrounding work space. The object's position and orientation (posture) are measured using a non-contact sensor on-board the robot. For gripping/docking tasks the goal posture is specified relative to the object and not in a fixed coordinate system of the robot. READ MORE

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Envision; kinematics singularities.; Automation; robotics; control engineering; Automatiska system; robotteknik; reglerteknik; Igrip; Matlab; 6D; 3D; laser scanning; arc sensing; seam tracking; robotic welding; Asimov; ROWER-2; FUSE; virtual prototyping; rapid prototyping; software development; simulation; virtual sensor; Robot; sensor control;

    Abstract : Sensor based control systems increase flexibility and autonomy in robotics. One of the most common applications in robotics is welding, which is often limited to objects with fine tolerances. READ MORE

  5. 5. Indoor Navigation for Mobile Robots : Control and Representations

    Author : Philipp Althaus; KTH; []
    Keywords : mobile robots; robot navigation; indoor navigation; behaviour based robotics; hybrid deliberative systems; dynamical systems approach; topological maps; symbol anchoring; autonomous mapping; human-robot interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with various aspects of indoor navigationfor mobile robots. For a system that moves around in ahousehold or office environment,two major problems must betackled. First, an appropriate control scheme has to bedesigned in order to navigate the platform. Second, the form ofrepresentations of the environment must be chosen. READ MORE
