— Domestic grazing animals follow simple, scalable rules to assign themselves trajectories to cover a pasture. We explain how to adapt these rules for an information gathering system based on a realistic robot motion model and Kalman-filter based evidence grid that accounts for both bandwidth and sensor limitations. Our results show that this algorithm can(More)
To perform complex tasks, a team of robots requires both reactive and deliberative planning. For reactive control, a restricted variant of Linear Temporal Logic called General Reactivity(1) can be used to synthesize correct-by-construction controllers in polynomial time, but they often ignore time and resource constraints to maintain tractable synthesis.(More)
