Shayegan Omidshafiei, Shih-Yuan Liu, Michael Everett, Brett T. Lopez, Christopher Amato, Miao Liu, Jonathan P. How, John Vian
2017 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)  
This paper formalizes the concept of macro-observations in Decentralized Partially Observable Semi-Markov Decision Processes (Dec-POSMDPs), allowing scalable semantic-level multi-robot decision making.  ...  This is important not only for low-level observations (e.g., accelerometer data), but also for high-level observations such as semantic object labels.  ...  Yet, limited work has been conducted on semantic-level multi-robot decision-making in stochastic domains.  ...
