Arbitrary Pattern Formation on Infinite Regular Tessellation Graphs [article]

Serafino Cicerone, Alessia Di Fonso, Gabriele Di Stefano, Alfredo Navarra
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Given a set R of robots, each one located at different vertices of an infinite regular tessellation graph, we aim to explore the Arbitrary Pattern Formation (APF) problem.  ...  Given a multiset F of grid vertices such that |R|=|F|, APF asks for a distributed algorithm that moves robots so as to reach a configuration similar to F.  ...  A tessellation graph of a regular tessellation is the infinite graph embedded into the Euclidean plane induced by the infinite lattice formed by that tessellation [22] .  ...

Expensive multiobjective optimization for robotics

Matthew Tesch, Jeff Schneider, Howie Choset
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
Proper treatment of these objective functions, while commonplace in fields such as economics, is often overlooked in robotics.  ...  Additionally, optimization of the performance of robotic systems can be restricted due to the expensive nature of testing control parameters on a physical system.  ...  Although the space of cyclic controls is infinite, Choset's robots are usually controlled by motions within a finite dimensional constrained control trajectory subspace (the gait model described in [1  ...

Fusing Monocular Information in Multicamera SLAM

J. Sola, A. Monin, M. Devy, T. Vidal-Calleja
2008 IEEE Transactions on robotics  
This paper explores the possibilities of using monocular simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms in systems with more than one camera.  ...  We do this by considering each camera as an independent sensor rather than the entire set as a monolithic supersensor. The visual data are treated by monocular methods and fused by the SLAM filter.  ...  Fig. 13 . 13 Top view of the map produced by cooperative SLAM of two independent cameras, and their crossing trajectories. The grid spacing is 2 m.  ...

The small-world phenomenon

Jon Kleinberg
2000 Proceedings of the thirty-second annual ACM symposium on Theory of computing - STOC '00  
Long a matter of folklore, the "small-world phenomenon" -the principle that we are all linked by short chains of acquaintances -was inaugurated as an area of experimental study in the social sciences through  ...  We then define an infinite family of network models that naturally generalizes the Watts-Strogatz model, and show that for one of these models, there is a decentralized algorithm capable of finding short  ...  A) B) u v w • We then define an infinite family of random network models that naturally generalizes the Watts-Strogatz model.  ...

2000 Proceedings of the third international conference on Collaborative virtual environments - CVE '00  
By understanding some of these models of space we may be able to better understand and better design the space of tomorrow.  ...  Not surprisingly, many people find one-way systems confusing and disorienting.  ...  Indeed, many of the same techniques used by jungle and maze explorers are used in the web: colouring of links is like the blazing of trees, the 'Go' menu or history list gives the equivalent of Ariadne's  ...

A systems architecture for ubiquitous video

Neil J. McCurdy, William G. Griswold
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Mobile systems, applications, and services - MobiSys '05  
By opportunistically harnessing networked mobile video cameras, it allows a user to remotely and immersively explore a physical space.  ...  Just as an operating system provides the illusion of infinite processors and infinite memory, RealityFlythrough provides the illusion of complete live camera coverage in a physical environment.  ...  Telepresence assumes an environment where robots can maneuver, and has a specific benefit in environments that would typically be unreachable by humans (Mars, for example).  ...
