Guided Self-organisation for Autonomous Robot Development [chapter]

Georg Martius, J. Michael Herrmann, Ralf Der
Advances in Artificial Life  
The paper presents a method to guide the self-organised development of behaviours of autonomous robots.  ...  In earlier publications we demonstrated how to use the homeokinesis principle and dynamical systems theory to obtain self-organised playful but goal-free behaviour.  ...  This study was supported by a grant from the BMBF in the framework of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Göttingen, grant number 01GQ0432.  ...

2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '10  
This paper proposes a software architecture and a development process for engineering dependable and controllable self-organising (SO) systems.  ...  We show how this applies to two different systems: (1) a dynamically resilient Web service system; and (2) an industrial assembly system with self-adaptive and SO capabilities.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to Yuhui Chen for his work on WS-Mediator. This work has been partially supported by the EPSRC Platform Grant on Trustworthy Ambient Systems (TrAmS).  ...

Robots and humans as co-workers? [article]

António Brandão Moniz
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We conclude that studies on technology assessment of industrial robotics and autonomous agents on manufacturing environment should also focus on the human involvement strategies in organisations.  ...  The social aspects that are related with new concepts on the complex work environments (CWE) are becoming more relevant for that design.  ...  Those systems would include autonomous robots, flexible warehouses, production cells, autonomous guided vehicles.  ...
