Kevin Boos, Chien-Liang Fok, Christine Julien, Miryung Kim
2012 2012 34th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
We discusses our experience implementing and using the framework with a mobile robot, and highlight key future research challenges.  ...  To address this, we propose BRACE, a framework that simplifies the process by enabling developers to correlate cyber (i.e., logical) and physical properties of the system via assertions.  ...  An Extensible Framework for Sensor Support.  ...

Searching objects in large-scale indoor environments: A decision-theoretic approach

Lars Kunze, Michael Beetz, Manabu Saito, Haseru Azuma, Kei Okada, Masayuki Inaba
2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
Hence, the robot first has to search for the object in its environment before it can perform the task.  ...  Many of today's mobile robots are supposed to perform everyday manipulation tasks autonomously. However, in large-scale environments, a task-related object might be out of the robot's reach.  ...  Among other reasons, this is because humans make use of different strategies when looking for an object.  ...

What Sort of Computation Mediates Best between Perception and Action? [chapter]

Murray Shanahan
1999 Logical Foundations for Cognitive Agents  
Drawing on recent work in the area of Cognitive Robotics, the paper argues for the viability of an answer based on a rigorous, logical account of interleaved perception, planning and action.  ...  A fluent for spatial occupancy is employed, and for reasons set out in [Shanahan, 1995a] , spatial occupancy is minimised using circumscription.  ...  For example, consider a wheeled mobile robot equipped with bump sensors. Σ E captures the fact that, if the robot executes a move forward command, its location in 2 will start to vary continuously.  ...

Composable continuous-space programs for robotic swarms

Jonathan Bachrach, Jacob Beal, James McLurkin
2010 Neural computing & applications (Print)  
The Proto spatial computing language, however, already provides this sort of aggregate behavior programming for non-mobile systems using an abstraction of the network as a continuous-space-filling device  ...  We extend this abstraction to mobile systems and show that Proto can be applied to multi-robot systems with an actuator that turns a vector field into device motion.  ...  The Proto language [7] already addresses these aggregate programming challenges for spatial computers composed of non-mobile devices, using the amorphous medium abstraction, which views the network as  ...
