Secure Encoded Instruction Graphs for End-to-End Data Validation in Autonomous Robots [article]

Jorge Peña Queralta, Li Qingqing, Eduardo Castelló Ferrer, Tomi Westerlund
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This paper introduces a robotic mission encoding method that serves as an end-to-end validation framework for autonomous robots.  ...  As a consequence, securing the operation of autonomous robots goes beyond securing data, from sensor input to mission instructions, towards securing the interaction with their environment.  ...  The main contributions of this work are 1) the definition of an end-to-end validation framework for autonomous robots based on encoded instruction graphs; 2) the introduction of a novel approach that encodes  ...

2011 2011 RO-MAN  
In this paper, an approach is presented that allows a robot to navigate in an urban environment by following natural language route instructions.  ...  In this situation, neither maps nor GPS information are available to the robot thus it has to rely solely on the human-given route description and the observations from its sensors.  ...  However, the robot needs to be able to understand whether it has reached the end of a route graph segment in order to switch to the next route direction.  ...
