Ant-Mutated Immune Particle Filter Design for Terrain Referenced Navigation with Interferometric Radar Altimeter

Suktae Kang, Myeong-Jong Yu
2021 Remote Sensing  
To verify the performance of the proposed filter, a terrain referenced navigation (TRN) simulation was conducted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).  ...  However, some IRA uncertainties caused by geometric factors and IRA-inherent measurement errors have proven to be difficult to eliminate by signal processing.  ...  The ant cooperates to build a probabilistic model on the pheromone deposition over the promising path (solutions).  ...

Survey of Robotic Applications for Odor-Sensing Technology

R. Andrew Russell
2001 The international journal of robotics research  
There follows a description of the reactive, often biologically inspired, control algorithms that have been used for this purpose.  ...  This paper presents a review of the current status of chemical sensing as a sensory modality for mobile robots.  ...  The current availability of each of these three requirements will govern whether a robotic system can be created for a particular application.  ...

Towards Fault Reactiveness in Wireless Sensor Networks with Mobile Carrier Robots

Rafael Jesus Falcon Martinez, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
Three nature-inspired metaheuristic approaches that run at a centralized location are proposed. They are able to find good-quality solutions in a short time.  ...  In the first one, carrier robots surround a point of interest with multiple sensor layers (focused coverage formation). We put forward the first known algorithm of its kind in literature.  ...  Defining when, how and by whom the pheromone trails are updated is a pivotal issue for any ACO implementation.  ...

The Ecology of a Tallgrass Treasure: Audubon's Spring Creek Prairie

Paul A. Johnsgard
2018 Zea Books  
Such amazing interior architecture of the entire structure could almost serve as a model for modern apartments.  ...  The plant produces a variety of fragrances, some of which are similar to sex-attractant pheromones used by bees for attracting females.  ...
