This paper summarizes our efforts to bring together and extend the best in current theory and technologies for teamwork-centered autonomy for space applications. Traditional planning technologies at the foundation of intelligent robotic systems typically take an autonomy-centered approach, with representations, mechanisms, and algorithms that have been(More)
A model-based, distributed architecture integrates diverse components in a system designed for lunar and planetary surface operations: spacesuit biosensors, cameras, GPS, and a robotic assistant. The system transmits data and assists communication between the extra-vehicular activity (EVA) astronauts, the crew in a local habitat, and a remote mission(More)
During the Mars Society's Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) Rotation 49 (April 23-May 7, 2006), we field tested and significantly extended a prototype monitoring and advising system for the habitat crew that integrates data from the MDRS power system. A distributed, wireless network of functionally specialized agents interact with the crew to provide(More)
TaqMan assays were developed for the detection of seven Dickeya species, namely D. dianthicola, D. dadantii, D. paradisiaca, D. chrysanthemi, D. zeae, D. dieffenbachiae and D. solani. Sequences of the gene coding for dnaX were used for the design of primers and probes. In studies with axenic cultures of bacteria, the assays were highly specific and only(More)
