In this paper we propose and analyze an algorithm to monitor an environmental boundary with mobile sensors. The objective is to optimally approximate the boundary with a polygon. The mobile sensors rely only on sensed local information to position some interpolation points and define an approximating polygon. We design an algorithm that distributes the… (More)

We present a real-time system that enables a highly capable dynamic quadruped robot to maintain an accurate 6-DOF pose estimate (better than 0.5m over every 50m traveled) over long distances traversed through complex, dynamic outdoor terrain, during day and night, in the presence of camera occlusion and saturation, and occasional large external… (More)

This paper analyzes a discrete-time algorithm to synchronize an even number of agents moving clockwise and counterclockwise on a boundary. Each agent or “bead” changes direction upon encountering another bead moving in the opposite direction. Communication is sporadic: only when two beads come sufficiently close they are able to exchange information. We… (More)

Adopting a tutorial approach, this paper surveys some control and systems theory problems that have recently gained interest in the context of multi-vehicle and sensor networks. By means of illustrative examples, we discuss some challenges in modeling of robotic networks, motion coordination algorithms, sensing and estimation tasks, and complexity of… (More)

Direct-lift micro air vehicles have important applications in reconnaissance. In order to conduct persistent surveillance in urban environments, it is essential that these systems can perform autonomous landing maneuvers on elevated surfaces that provide high vantage points without the help of any external sensor and with a fully contained on-board software… (More)

This paper analyzes a discrete-time algorithm to synchronize a group of agents moving back and forth on a ring. Each agent or “bead” changes direction upon encountering another bead moving in the opposite direction. Communication is sporadic: two beads are able to exchange information only when they come sufficiently close. This allows agents to update… (More)

A novel method is developed to obtain a refined estimate of relative position and orientation (pose) from two views captured by a calibrated monocular camera. Due to the typically large number of matched pairs of feature points available, many estimates of the pose are possible by taking minimal sets of feature points. Among such estimates, the proposed… (More)

The subjects of this paper are descent algorithms to optimally approximate a strictly convex contour with a polygon. This classic geometric problem is relevant in interpolation theory and data compression, and has potential applications in robotic sensor networks. We design gradient descent laws for intuitive performance metrics such as the area of the… (More)

We propose algorithms that compute polygon approximations for convex contours. This geometric problem is relevant in interpolation theory, data compression, and has potential applications in robotic sensor networks. The algorithms are based on simple feedback ideas, on limited nearest-neighbor information, and amount to gradient descent laws for appropriate… (More)
