The usage of multi-agent systems for manufacturing control seems to be sharply contrasted by classical mathematical control theory. This work emphasizes how views from both scientific fields can be combined to create the flexible and optimal manufacturing control systems of tomorrow.
— Unmanned marine crafts constitute a priority area within several fields of study, and there are still many challenges related to making such vessels autonomous. A basic task of an autonomous marine craft is to follow a general path in the presence of unknown ocean currents. This paper presents a method to achieve this for surface vessels. The results are… (More)
Multi-link wheeled robots provide interesting opportunities within many areas such as inspection and maintenance of pipes or vents. A key functionality in order to perform such operations, is that the robot can follow a predefined path fast and accurately. In this paper we present an algorithm to learn the path-following behavior for a set of motion… (More)
