Multi-robot coordination is an important field of study in the recent years, due to the need of systems designed for complex tasks. Recently, the capability to perform tasks achievable only by multiple collaborating robots has been investigated, and there are studies on scenarios where robots can accomplish tasks/missions only if they have some aid from(More)
In large-scale, complex domains such as space defense and security systems, situation assessment and decision making are evolving from centralized models to high-level, net-centric models. In this context, collaboration among the many actors involved in the situation assessment process is critical in order to achieve a prompt reaction as needed in the(More)
To act effectively under uncertainty, multi-robot teams need to accurately estimate the state of the environment. Although individual robots, with uncertain sensors, may not be able to accurately determine the current situation, the team as a whole should have the capability to perform situation assessment. However, sharing all information with all other(More)
Situation Assessment and decision making in monitoring and surveillance scenarios are evolving from centralized models to high-level, reasoning oriented, net-centric models, according to new information fusion paradigms proposed by recent research.
This thesis focuses on the development and improvement of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping algorithms. In particular, we are interested in reliable and effective techniques for unstructured large scale environments. While previous researcher focused on the analysis of class of algorithms or general effects of different algorithms (e.g. complexity,(More)
A prerequisite to efficient behavior by a team of agents or robots is the ability to accurately interpret the situation in which action must take place. Although individual agents, with local and uncertain information by sensors, will not be able to have enough information about the environment, to take correct decisions, collectively the team may be able(More)
Intrafamilial spread of HBV infection was evaluated in 85 Italian family groups. Secondary infected cases were observed in 43% of these families, of which 73% showed clusters of HBs positive members, with a prevalence among the family members (children-siblings) of the mother/wife index cases, and no strict relation to their "e" system. The presence of the(More)
