Architectures and Control of Networked Robotic Systems [chapter]

Nikolaus Correll, Daniela Rus
2013 Handbook of Collective Robotics  
Introduction A networked robot system is a system comprised of multiple robots in which robots actively communicate with each other, sensors, or other computational agents using some form of wireless communication  ...  Networked robot systems are ensembles of robots that enhance their individual capabilities by sharing perception, computation and actuation capabilities with each other to solve problems that an individual  ...  Be it by receiving and triangulating position information from Global Positioning System Satellites or by exchanging range and bearing information with neighboring robots.  ...

2007 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
To coordinate a team of robots for exploration is a challenging problem, particularly in unstructured areas, as for example post-disaster scenarios where direct communication is severely constrained.  ...  To share a common frame of reference among robots we use a feature based SLAM approach (where features are RFIDs). The approach has been evaluated on a 3D simulation based on USARSim.  ...  During execution, robots are coordinated via RFID chips and perform a local search which allows them to explore an environment with low computational overhead and communication constraints.  ...

Endomicroscopy for Computer and Robot Assisted Intervention

Siyang Zuo, Guang-Zhong Yang
2017 IEEE Reviews in Biomedical Engineering  
Endomicroscopy is a new technique that allows human tissue to be characterized in vivo, and in situ, circumventing the need for conventional biopsy and histology.  ...  Recently, advances in high-speed imaging, mosaicing and robotics have aimed to address these difficulties.  ...  A bespoke bearing and a passive linear structure are used to control image rotation and ensure consistent tool-tissue contact.  ...

Toward Robot Perception through Omnidirectional Vision [chapter]

José Gaspar, Niall Winters, Etienne Grossmann, José Santos- Victor
2007 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
In general, a single image taken by a calibrated camera provides only bearing measurements. Thus, triangulation is a more "natural" way to calculate self-localisation.  ...  Omnidirectional images can be generated by a number of different systems which can be classified into four distinct design groupings: Camera-Only Systems; Multi-Camera -Multi-Mirror Systems; Single Camera  ...
