This work details a new method for loop-closure detection based on using multiple orthogonal projections to generate a global signature for each image of a video sequence. The new multi-projection function permits the detection of images corresponding to the same scene, but taken from different...
This paper is focused on endowing a mobile robot with topological spatial cognition. We propose an integrated model—where the concept of a ‘place’ is defined as a collection of appearances or locations sharing common perceptual signatures or physical boundaries. In this model, as the robot...
In this paper, we present a framework for generating smooth and stable trajectories for wheeled mobile robots moving on uneven terrains. Instead of relying on static stability measures, the paper incorporates velocity and acceleration based constraints like no-slip and permanent wheel ground...
In this work, we present a novel method for automating persistent surveillance missions involving multiple vehicles. Automata-based techniques are used to generate collision-free motion plans for a team of vehicles to satisfy a temporal logic specification. Vector fields are created for use with...
The paper achieves two outcomes. First, it summarizes previous work on concurrent Markov decision processes (CMDPs) currently demonstrated for use with multi-agent foraging problems. When using CMDPs, each agent models the environment using two Markov decision process (MDP). The two MDPs...
The velocity obstacle (VO) method is one of local path generation method considering a velocity of obstacles. By dividing an available velocity region into collision and collision-free area, a robot can avoid collisions using the VO. However, if there are numerous obstacles near a robot, the...
