The recent development of a new kind of public transportation system relies on a particular double-steering kinematic structure enhancing manoeuvrability in cluttered environments such as downtown areas. We call bi-steerable car a vehicle showing this kind of kinematics. Endowed with autonomy capacities, the bi-steerable car ought to combine suitably and(More)

Evolve safely in an unchanged environment and possibly following an optimal trajectory is one big challenge presented by situated robotics research field. Collision avoidance is a basic security requirement and this paper proposes a solution based on a probabilistic approach called Bayesian Programming. This approach aims to deal with the uncertainty,(More)
This paper describes the implementation of a platform based on reconfigurable architecture and on concepts of virtual instrumentation and its application to the hands-free driving problem. The novelty of this approach is the use of both reconfigurable systems (for developing the car’s controller) and virtual instrumentation issues for developing a(More)
Unexpected events and not modeled properties of the robot environment are some of the challenges presented by situated robotics research field. Collision avoidance is a basic security requirement and this paper proposes a probabilistic approach called Bayesian Programming, which aims to deal with the uncertainty, imprecision and incompleteness of the(More)
Living beings are often observed switching strategies in response to a changing environment. However, autonomous robotics mostly implements a single behaviour well suited to a particular task such as navigation, localization and so on. Actually, one burning issue of autonomous robotics is to manage a complex task starting from a set of simple behaviours. In(More)
