Dual Dynamics (DD) is a mathematical model of a behavior control system for mobile autonomous robots. Behaviors are specified through differential equations, forming a global dynamical system made of behavior subsystems which interact in a number of ways. DD models can be directly compiled into executable code. The article (i) explains the model, (ii)… (More)
The design of autonomous mobile robots includes the design of team behaviors. We have extended the Dual Dynamics scheme for behavior design in order to let the designer specify team behavior. This approach comes with a tool suite for team behavior specification, simulation, and monitoring, and is used for the coordination of soccer playing robots.
Robot programs have to be tested systematically on a daily basis in order to improve robot performance in a controlled way. This requires automated suponly show up in some statistics. Statistical performance data are hard to collect manually. Furthermore, observation by humans is too time consuming and expensive. Systematic tests on a daily basis are port.… (More)
Autonomous mobile robots in dynamic environments have to switch from the „stop and wait until I’m sure“ mentality to a continuous movement kind of style. As both the robot and objects in its surrounding move, the robot has to react on sensory input as fast as possible but without becoming instable. This is challenging also because speed increases the… (More)
In order to assess the fitness of a program controlling a robot, many experiments have to be performed. Unfortunately the execution of an experiment and the analysis of its result are very time-consuming. In this paper we name the key factors for fast assessment of robot programs and illustrate briefly how our suite of development tools supports them.
In this paper, we describe the GMD-Robots. These robots will be presented at the RoboCup 1999. RoboCup is the robot world cup soccer games and conferences. It offers the opportunity to examine a wide range of technologies in different research areas. RoboCup is a task for a team of multiple moving robots in a dynamic environment. In order for a robot team… (More)
User interfaces determine the process support that is really delivered to the user. In order to support a process effectively, individually tailored user interfaces have to be provided. Most process centered software engineering environments (PSEEs) provide predefined user interfaces, but only low-level languages which can be used by customers to build… (More)
