Sensor-Based Exploration: The Hierarchical Generalized Voronoi Graph
TLDR
The hierarchical generalized Voronoi graph (HGVG) is a new roadmap developed for sensor-based exploration in unknown environments that can be incrementally constructed using only line-of-sight sensor data. Expand

Stochastic cloning: a generalized framework for processing relative state measurements
TLDR
Introduces a generalized framework, termed "stochastic cloning," for processing relative state measurements within a Kalman filter estimator, by directly expressingrelative state measurements in terms of previous and current state estimates. Expand

Probabilistic Collision Checking With Chance Constraints
TLDR
An alternative formulation of probabilistic collision checking that accounts for robot and obstacle uncertainty is presented which allows for dependent object distributions (e.g., interactive robot-obstacle models). Expand

The Geometric Mechanics of Undulatory Robotic Locomotion
TLDR
This paper uses geometric methods to study basic problems in the mechanics and control of locomotion in which net motion is generated by coupling internal shape changes with external nonholonomic con straints. Expand
