2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Sensor-mission assignment involves the allocation of sensor and other information-providing resources to missions in order to cover the information needs of the individual tasks in each mission.  ...  This paper approaches the sensor-mission assignment problem from a Semantic Web perspective: the core of the approach is a set of ontologies describing mission tasks, sensors, and deployment platforms.  ...  The views and conclusions contained in this document are those of the author(s) and should not be interpreted as representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the U.S.  ...

Enabling intra-robotic capabilities adaptation using an organization-based multiagent system

E. Matson, S. DeLoach
2004 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 2004. Proceedings. ICRA '04. 2004  
In harsh or dangerous environments, robots can lose function in multiple sensors and effectors over the mission, thus reducing their overall capability.  ...  If the capabilities provided by these sensors/effectors are necessary for mission completion, having an adaptive system that can overcome these losses is critical to mission accomplishment.  ...  Organizational rules are used to constrain the assignment of agents to roles and goals within the organization.  ...

Yuman Gao, Yingjian Wang, Xingguang Zhong, Tiankai Yang, Mingyang Wang, Zhixiong Xu, Yongchao Wang, Chao Xu, Fei Gao
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Considering communication is limited in both bandwidth and range in the real world, we propose a lightweight environment presentation method and an efficient cooperative exploration strategy.  ...  To reduce repeated exploration, we develop a mission-based protocol that drives robots to share collected information in stable rendezvous.  ...  However, the connection requirements of these approaches might over-constrain the mission objective, resulting in reducted behaviors.  ...
