Networked Robots [chapter]

Vijay Kumar, Daniela Rus, Gaurav S. Sukhatme
2008 Springer Handbook of Robotics  
Human users can use machines that are remotely located via the network. (See Fig. 7 .3.) The ability to network robots also enables fault-tolerance in design.  ...  As domestic and personal robots become more commonplace, it is natural to see these robots working with sensors and appliances in the house while cooperating with one or more human users.  ...

Task-centric Optimization of Configurations for Assistive Robots [article]

Ariel Kapusta, Charles C. Kemp
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We additionally demonstrate how TOC can find configurations for more than one robot and can be used to assist in designing or optimizing environments.  ...  Notably, TOC can return more than one configuration that when used sequentially enable a simulated assistive robot to reach more task-relevant locations.  ...  Performance of assistive tasks is addressed in many other works (see Section 2.4). The questions we ask are: how can the the robot select a good configuration, and what makes a configuration good?  ...
