We have designed and built a new open hardware/software board that lets miniaturized robots communicate and at the same time obtain the range and bearing of the source of emission. The open E-puck Range & Bearing board improves an existing infrared relative localization/communication software library (libIrcom) developed for the e-puck robot and based on(More)
In this paper, we propose a swarm intelligence localization strategy in which robots have to locate different resource areas in a bounded arena and forage between them. The robots have no knowledge of the arena dimensions and of the number of resource areas. The strategy is based on peer-to-peer local communication without the need for any central unit.(More)
Fuzzy Logic Controllers constitute knowledge-based systems that include Fuzzy Rules and Fuzzy Membership Functions to incorporate human knowledge into their knowledge base. The deenition of fuzzy rules and fuzzy membership functions is one of the key question when designing Fuzzy Logic Controllers, and is generally aaected by subjective decisions. Some(More)
Although wireless, mainly radio, communications are universally used in sensor networks, no localisation information is offered in an unstructured environment, without modifying or characterising the surroundings. In this paper we describe a localisation and local communication sensor which allows situated agents to communicate locally obtaining at the same(More)
BACKGROUND Quantitative measures of human movement quality are important for discriminating healthy and pathological conditions and for expressing the outcomes and clinically important changes in subjects' functional state. However the most frequently used instruments for the upper extremity functional assessment are clinical scales, that previously have(More)
The improvement of odometry systems in collective robotics remains an important challenge for several applications. Social odometry is an online social dynamics which confers the robots the possibility to learn from the others. Robots neither share any movement constraint nor access to centralized information. Each robot has an estimate of its own location(More)
In this paper we present a heterogeneous collaborative sensor network for electrical management in the residential sector. Improving demand-side management is very important in distributed energy generation applications. Sensing and control are the foundations of the "Smart Grid" which is the future of large-scale energy management. The system presented in(More)
A new algorithm for the control of robot flocking is presented. Flocks of mobile robots are created by the use of local control rules in a fully distributed way, using just local information from simple infra-red sensors and global heading information on each robot. Experiments were done to test the algorithm, yielding results in which robots behaved as(More)
In this paper, we study a new approach to multi-robot localization based on local communication which confers the robots the possibility to learn from the others. By communicating with the rest of the group, robots are able to correct, localize and achieve tasks they could not solve by their own. We use a foraging task as test bed where a nest and prey(More)
