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.
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.
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.
Adaptive teams of autonomous aerial and ground robots for situational awareness: Field Reports
A team of aerial and ground robots is able to monitor a small village, and search for and localize human targets by the color of the uniform, while ensuring that the information from the team is available to a remotely located human operator.
Anticipatory robot navigation by simultaneously localizing and building a cognitive map

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 both…
An Empirical Evaluation of Context-Sensitive Pose Estimators in an Urban Outdoor Environment
A computational method for localization is proposed that systematically integrates and evaluates contextual information that affects the quality of sensors, and utilize the information in order to improve the output of sensor fusion.
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.
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.
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.
Field Results for Tactical Mobile Robot Missions
The emphasis of these particular experiments was the practical implementation of schema-based behavioral control with the mission specification system when designed with the novice user in mind.
