Usability evaluation of high-level user assistance for robot mission specification
The mission-planning wizard has been recently integrated into MissionLab, and testing for usability improvements in terms of speed of the mission planning process, accuracy of the produced mission plans, and ease of use is conducted. Expand
Adaptive teams of autonomous aerial and ground robots for situational awareness
This is a preprint of an article accepted for publication in the Journal of Field Robotics, copyright 2007 and will be published online in Wiley InterScience. Expand
Usability evaluation of an automated mission repair mechanism for mobile robot mission specification
A new automated mission repair mechanism that aids users in correcting faulty missions was added to the system and this mechanism was compared to an older version in order to better inform the development process, and set a direction for future improvements in usability. Expand
Anticipatory robot navigation by simultaneously localizing and building a cognitive map

  • 8 December 2003
This paper presents a method for a mobile robot to construct and localize relative to a "cognitive map", where the cognitive map is assumed to be a representational structure that encodes bothExpand
Adaptive teams of autonomous aerial and ground robots for situational awareness: Field Reports
In this paper, we report on the integration challenges of the various component technologies developed toward the establishment of a framework for deploying an adaptive system of heterogeneous robotsExpand
An Empirical Evaluation of Context-Sensitive Pose Estimators in an Urban Outdoor Environment
Abstract : When a mobile robot is executing a navigational task in an urban outdoor environment, accurate localization information is often essential. The difficulty of this task is compounded byExpand
Tactical mobile robot mission specification and execution
An overview of the approach being taken by the Georgia Tech/Honeywell team is provided and a range of preliminary results for a variety of missions in both simulation and on actual robots are presented. Expand
Integrated Mission Specification and Task Allocation for Robot Teams - Design and Implementation
This work loosens the assumption that the robots available for the mission are of the same type (i.e., homogeneous) through the integration of contract-net protocol based task allocation coupled with a CBR-based mission specification wizard. Expand
Anticipatory robot control for a partially observable environment using episodic memories

  • 19 May 2008
Inspired by biological findings on the mammalian hippocampus, here, episodic memories retain a sequence of experienced observation, behavior, and reward in a partially observable environment. Expand
Field Results for Tactical Mobile Robot Missions
Abstract : In 1999, Georgia Tech conducted two field experiments to determine the performance of its mission specification system. The experiments were developed for the DARPA Tactical MobileExpand
