W e are pleased to introduce this collection of papers covering different aspects of intelligent transportation systems. These papers were selected from a list of papers pre-In order to bear witness and celebrate the large success of these two scientific meetings, that for the first time were held in the same year and same place, the two Program Chairs,(More)
— In this paper we propose a novel policy for steering multiple vehicles between assigned independent start and goal configurations and ensuring collision avoidance. The policy rests on the assumption that agents are all cooperating by implementing the same traffic rules. However, the policy is completely decentralized, as each agent decides its own motion(More)
—In this paper, we consider optimal resolution of air traffic (AT) conflicts. Aircraft are assumed to cruise within a given altitude layer and are modeled as a kinematic system with constant velocity and curvature bounds. Aircraft cannot get closer to each other than a predefined safety distance. For such system of multiple aircraft, we consider the problem(More)
—This paper presents a complete characterization of shortest paths to a goal position for a robot with unicycle kinematics and an on-board camera with limited Field-Of-View (FOV), which must keep a given feature in sight. Previous work on this subject has shown that the search for a shortest path can be limited to simple families of trajectories. In this(More)
• Increasing need for applications in which heterogeneous robots will coexist and collaborate to achieve a common goal; • for instance, we can imagine that in the future personal robots will go to shop for the family (Fig. 1); • as for Human and animal societies, " sociality " in these artificial systems is based on the establishment of " rules of(More)
In this paper we describe work being done at our Department to make the Robotics laboratory accessible to students and colleagues, to execute and watch real-time experiments at any time and from anywhere. We describe few different installations, and highlight the underlying philosophy, which is aimed at enlarging the lab in all the dimensions of space,(More)
— In this paper, we consider a decentralized cooperative control policy proposed recently for steering multiple non-holonomic vehicles between assigned start and goal configurations while avoiding collisions. The policy is known to ensure safety (i.e., collision avoidance) for an arbitrarily large number of vehicles, if initial configurations satisfy(More)
— This paper focuses on the detection of misbehaving agents within a group of mobile robots. A novel approach to automatically synthesize a decentralized Intrusion Detection System (IDS) as well as an efficient implementation of local monitors are presented. In our scenario, agents perform possibly different independent tasks, but cooperate to guarantee the(More)
