A newborn foal can learn to walk soon after birth through a process of rapid adaptation acting on its locomotor controller. It is proposed here that this kind of adaptation can be modeled as a distributed system of adaptive modules (AMs) acting on a distributed system of adaptive oscillators...
An important issue that arises in the automation of many security, surveillance, and reconnaissance tasks is that of observing the movements of targets navigating in a bounded area of interest. A key research issue in these problems is that of sensor placement—determining where sensors should be...
Recent research in mobile robot navigation make it feasible to utilize autonomous robots in service fields. But, such applications require more than just navigation. To operate in a peopled environment, robots should recognize and act according to human social behavior. In this paper, we present...
This article describes a novel qualitative navigation method for autonomous wheelchair robots in typical home environments. The method accepts as input a line diagram of the robot environment and converts it into an enhanced grid in which qualitative representations of variations in sensor...
The solution to the simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem where an autonomous vehicle starts in an unknown location in an unknown environment and then incrementally build a map of landmarks present in this environment while simultaneously using this map to compute absolute...
To navigate in unknown environments, mobile robots require the ability to build their own maps. A major problem for robot map building is that odometry-based dead reckoning cannot be used to assign accurate global position information to a map because of cumulative drift errors. This paper...
