This paper describes our approach in designing an autonomous robot for the AAAI Mobile Robot Challenge, making the robot attend the National Conference on AI. The goal was to do a simplified version of the whole task, by integrating methodologies developed in various research projects conducted in our laboratory. Original contributions are the use of a(More)
Planning with action concurrency under time and resources constraints and uncertainty is a challenging problem. Current approaches which rely on Markov Decision Processes and a discrete model for time and resources are limited by a blow-up of the search state-space. This paper presents a planner which is based on a classical forward search for solving this(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C7H10NO)2[SnBr6]·2H2O, contains one cation, one half-dianion and one lattice water mol-ecule. The [SnBr6](2-) dianion, located on an inversion center, exhibits a highly distorted octa-hedral coordination environment, with Sn-Br bond lengths ranging from 2.2426 (9) to 3.0886 (13) Å. In the crystal, O-H⋯Br, N-H⋯Br,(More)
Regular crystals of the title compound, (C(2)H(8)N)(2)[Sn(CH(3))(2)Cl(4)], were obtained by reacting SnMe(2)Cl(2) with (CH(3))(2)NH·HCl in ethanol in a 1:1 ratio. The Sn atom lies on a center of symmetry and is six-coordinated. It has a distorted octahedral SnC(2)Cl(4) environment with the Cl atoms in cis positions. The Cl atoms are connected to(More)
