Bitbots: Simple Robots Solving Complex Tasks

  title={Bitbots: Simple Robots Solving Complex Tasks},
  author={Anna Yershova and Benjam{\'i}n Tovar and Robert Ghrist and Steven M. LaValle},
Sensing uncertainty is a central issue in robotics. Sensor limitations often prevent accurate state estimation, and robots find themselves confronted with a complicated information (belief) space. In this paper we define and characterize the information spaces of very simple robots, called Bitbots, which have severe sensor limitations. While complete estimation of the robot’s state is impossible, careful consideration and management of the uncertainty is presented as a search in the information… CONTINUE READING
