As the community strives towards autonomous multi-robot systems, there is a need for these systems to autonomously form coalitions to complete assigned missions. Numerous coalition formation algorithms have been proposed in the software agent literature. Algorithms exist that form agent coalitions in both super additive and non-super additive environments.(More)
A problem that has recently attracted the attention of the research community is the autonomous formation of robot teams to perform complex multirobot tasks. The corresponding problem for software agents is also known in the multi-agent community as the coalition formation problem. Numerous algorithms for software agent coalition formation have been(More)
Task allocation is an issue that every multi-robot system must address. Recent task allocation solutions propose an auction based approach wherein robots bid for tasks based on cost functions for performing a task. This paper presents RACHNA, a novel architecture for multi-robot task allocation based on a modified algorithm for the winner determination(More)
∗ 0-7803-7952-7/03/$17.00 © 2003 IEEE. Abstract A human-robot interface for a mobile robot was extended to include a discrete geodesic dome called a Sensory EgoSphere (SES). The SES is a two-dimensional data structure, centered on the robot’s coordinate frame. The SES provides the robot’s perspective of a remote environment via images, sonar, and laser(More)
A novel implicit human-machine interaction communication framework that is sensitive to human affective states is presented. The purpose is to achieve detection and recognition of human affect based on physiological signals which involves building an affect recognition system that accepts various physiological parameters as inputs and predicts the probable(More)
HUMAN MANAGEMENT OF A HIERARCHICAL CONTROL SYSTEM FOR MULTIPLE MOBILE ROBOTS Julie A Adams Richard P Paul We have developed a hierarchy of human supervisory mediation levels into a robotic system The purpose of this work was to create a semi autonomous system which should enable completion of all feasible tasks We propose the mediation hierarchy permits(More)
Coalition structure generation is a central problem in characteristic function games. Most algorithmic work to date can be classified into one of three broad categories: anytime algorithms, design-to-time algorithms and heuristic algorithms [5]. This paper focuses on the former two approaches. Both design-to-time and anytime algorithms have pros and cons.(More)
