Teaching Agents how to Map: Spatial Reasoning for Multi-Object Navigation [article]

Pierre Marza, Laetitia Matignon, Olivier Simonin, Christian Wolf
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show that learning to estimate metrics quantifying the spatial relationships between an agent at a given location and a goal to reach has a high positive impact in Multi-Object Navigation settings.  ...  This ability can be associated with spatial reasoning, where an agent is able to perceive spatial relationships and regularities, and discover object characteristics.  ...  WOLF: TEACHING AGENTS HOW TO MAP P.

Interactive Semantic Mapping: Experimental Evaluation [chapter]

2015 Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics  
Such a map is a representation that enables the robot to ground the commands into the actual places and objects located in the environment.  ...  The results of the experiments not only provide the basis for a discussion of the features of the proposed approach, but also highlight the manifold issues that arise in the evaluation of semantic mapping  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Joachim Hertzberg for insightful discussions on the experimental evaluation of semantic mapping.  ...

2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning and Epigenetic Robotics (ICDL)  
We performed a series of experimentations with robots and simulated agents to validate our system.  ...  In particular, we show that adding a simple imitation and deposit behavior allows the cognitive robots to adapt themselves in unknown environment to solve different navigation tasks.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank the financial support of the Tunisian General Direction of Scientific Research and Technological Renovation (DGRSRT), under the ARUB program 01/UR/11 02,  ...

Playful Mapping in the Digital Age

Craig M. Dalton
2018 The AAG Review of Books  
Top-down cartographic views are only one example of how cartographic reason may manifest in relation to spatiality in games.  ...  This is done for two reasons. First, games and maps are principally spatial constructs, and it is of theoretic importance to relate to them as such.  ...

Generating Landmark Navigation Instructions from Maps as a Graph-to-Text Problem [article]

Raphael Schumann, Stefan Riezler
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Car-focused navigation services are based on turns and distances of named streets, whereas navigation instructions naturally used by humans are centered around physical objects called landmarks.  ...  Our evaluation shows that the navigation instructions generated by our system have similar properties as human-generated instructions, and lead to successful human navigation in Street View.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Christian Buck and Massimiliano Ciaramita for initial fruitful discussions about this work.  ...
