— The vision of an Ecology of Physically Embedded Intelligent Systems, or PEIS-Ecology, combines insights from the fields of autonomous robotics and ambient intelligence to provide a new approach to building robotic systems in the service of people. In this paper, we present this vision, and we report the results of a four-year collaborative research(More)
— We consider an ecology of robots in which robots can help each other by offering information-producing func-tionalities. A functional configuration of this ecology is a way to allocate and connect functionalities among the participating robots. In general, different configurations can be used to solve the same task, depending on the current situation, and(More)
We consider distributed systems of networked robots in which: (1) each robot includes sensing, acting and/or processing modular functionalities; and (2) robots can help each other by offering those functionalities. A functional configuration is any way to allocate and connect functionalities among the robots. An interesting feature of a system of this type(More)
We consider groups of autonomous robots in which robots can help each other by offering information-producing func-tionalities. A functional configuration is a way to allocate and connect functionalities among robots. In general, different configurations can be used to solve the same task, depending on the current situation. In this paper, we define the(More)
We consider multi-robot systems where robots need to cooperate tightly by sharing functionalities with each other. There are methods for automatically configuring a multi-robot system for tight cooperation, but they only produce a single configuration. In this paper, we show how methods for automatic configuration can be integrated with methods for task(More)
— There is a tendency today toward the study of distributed systems consisting of many heterogeneous, networked, cooperating robotic devices. We refer to a system of this type as an ecology of robots. We call functional configuration of this ecology a way to allocate and connect functionalities among its robots. In general, the same ecology can perform(More)
