Gathering in the Plane of Location-Aware Robots in the Presence of Spies [article]

Jurek Czyzowicz, Ryan Killick, Evangelos Kranakis, Danny Krizanc, Oscar Morale-Ponce
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The reliable robots need to gather, i.e., arrive to a configuration in which at the same time, all of them occupy the same point on the plane.  ...  A set of mobile robots (represented as points) is distributed in the Cartesian plane. The collection contains an unknown subset of byzantine robots which are indistinguishable from the reliable ones.  ...  It is assumed that each robot in S is equipped with a GPS device so it is aware of a pair of Cartesian coordinates representing its current location in the plane.  ...

Rendezvous on a Line by Location-Aware Robots Despite the Presence of Byzantine Faults [article]

Huda Chuangpishit, Jurek Czyzowicz, Evangelos Kranakis, Danny Krizanc
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The collection contains an unknown subset of "spies", i.e., byzantine robots, which are indistinguishable from the non-faulty ones.  ...  The set of the non-faulty robots need to rendezvous in the shortest possible time in order to perform some task, while the byzantine robots may try to delay their rendezvous for as long as possible.  ...  cycles and have to end up in the same node [21] , as well as oblivious mobile robots in the same location of the plane when the robots have limited visibility [18] .  ...

PipeProbe

Tsung-te (Ted) Lai, Yu-han (Tiffany) Chen, Polly Huang, Hao-hua Chu
2010 Proceedings of the 8th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems - SenSys '10  
Through spatio-temporal analysis on the sensor readings, our algorithm locates all turning points in the pipelines and maps their 3D spatial topology.  ...  As the PipeProbe capsule traverses the pipelines, it gathers and transmits pressure and angular velocity readings.  ...  Furthermore, the final prototype has a tail-like fin whose function is to further stabilize the capsule's movement on the horizontal plane and to re-align the capsule's heading in the presence of turbulent  ...

Deploying and evaluating a location-aware system

R. K. Harle, A. Hopper
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Mobile systems, applications, and services - MobiSys '05  
Location-aware systems are typically deployed on a small scale and evaluated technically, in terms of absolute errors.  ...  In this paper, the authors present their experience of deploying an indoor location system (the Bat system) over a larger area and running it for a period exceeding two years.  ...  Visitors are presented with a list of tracked users who they can alert to their presence and then be directed to the current location of their host.  ...

Tracking with high-density, large-scale wireless sensor networks

Davide Merico
2010 Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments  
My special thanks go to Alessandra Mileo and Torsten Schaub for inspiring discussions when working on the logic-based techniques and for their continuous support.  ...  Acknowledgments First of all, I would like to thank, with deep gratitude, my thesis advisor Prof. Roberto Bisiani. Roberto has been more than a perfect advisor during my research project.  ...  We do not focus on the use of robots for healthcare because, beyond their high cost of set up and maintenance, their presence is rather intrusive and the help they can really provide is marginal.  ...

De Bello Robotico. An Ethical Assessment of Military Robotics

Riccardo Campa
2019 Studia Humana  
Finally, the article explores possible future developments of military robotics and present six reasons why a war between humans and automata is unlikely to happen in the 21st century.  ...  This article provides a detailed description of robotic weapons and unmanned systems currently used by the U.S.  ...  In US military and political circles 1 the term-concept 'unmanned system' has been introduced to denote systems of weaponry that do not require the presence of human beings where they are located.  ...

Space in 150 years: from Fantasy through fiction to fact and function

D. Southwood
2016 Aeronautical Journal  
In the last century and a half, space has moved from the realm of fantasy to everyday reality.  ...  In parallel, the way space has been regarded by the person in the street and the ideas of what access to space might be used for have evolved extraordinarily.  ...  Nevertheless, no one can deny that the pace of establishing a human presence in space slowed dramatically after the goal of landing humans on the Moon had been achieved at the end of the sixties.  ...
