  1. 1. Mobile Robot Traversability Mapping : For Outdoor Navigation

    Author : Peter Nordin; Petter Krus; Jonas Nygårds; Nils Axel Andersen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Traversability; Laser; Roughness; Mapping; Planning; Mobile robot; Navigation; Implementation;

    Abstract : To avoid getting stuck or causing damage to a vehicle or its surroundings a driver must be able to identify obstacles and adapt speed to ground conditions. An automatically controlled vehicle must be able to handle these identifications and adjustments by itself using sensors, actuators and control software. READ MORE

  2. 2. Who is responsible? : Communication, coordination and collaboration in the future Air Traffic Management system

    Author : Fredrik Barchéus; Lena Mårtensson; Don Harris; KTH; []

    Abstract : nternational civil aviation has experienced a steady growth in the past decades that is foreseen to continue. To overcome capacity limits of the old Air Traffic Control systems, new technology is currently being developed and introduced. READ MORE

  3. 3. 3-D Nautical Charts and Safe Navigation

    Author : Thomas Porathe; Rune Pettersson; Åke Sivertun; Jan-Terje Bjørke; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; 3-D nautical charts; Mental rotations; safety at sea; vehicle navigation; 3D-sjökort; mentala rotationer; sjösäkerhet; fordonsnavigering; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Innovation och design;

    Abstract : In spite of all electronic navigation devices on a modern ship bridge, navigators still lose their orientation. Reasons for this might be excessive cognitive workload caused by too many instruments to read and compile, navigation information that is displayed in a cognitively demanding way, short decision times due to high speed or fatigue due to minimum manning and long work hours.

  4. 4. Estimation and Detection with Applications to Navigation

    Author : David Törnqvist; Fredrik Gustafsson; Hugh Durrant-Whyte; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Navigation; SLAM; Particle Filter; Estimation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The ability to navigate in an unknown environment is an enabler for truly utonomous systems. Such a system must be aware of its relative position to the surroundings using sensor measurements. It is instrumental that these measurements are monitored for disturbances and faults. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring Heavy Vehicle Interaction : Interaction design studies of industrial vehicle operators' information awareness using mixed reality

    Author : Markus Wallmyr; Gordana Dodig-Crnkovic; Rikard Lindell; Jens Krzywinski; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Abstract : The work presented in this dissertation is in the field of interaction design through visual interaction with information systems in heavy industrial vehicles within agriculture, forestry, and construction. The dissertation investigates how interaction technologies and the application of interaction design methods can be used to provide an efficient interaction and a good user experience for the operator interacting with the heavy vehicle information system.
