Figures and Topics from this paper


A Survey and Analysis of Multi-Robot Coordination
This paper presents a systematic survey and analysis of the existing literature on coordination, especially in multiple mobile robot systems (MMRSs), which includes a communication mechanism, a planning strategy and a decision-making structure. Expand
Human-aware robot navigation: A survey
This paper provides a survey of existing approaches to human-aware navigation and offers a general classification scheme for the presented methods. Expand
Building a ROS-Based Testbed for Realistic Multi-Robot Simulation: Taking the Exploration as an Example
A benchmarking process based on experimental designs is defined, which aimed at improving the reproducibility of experiments by making explicit all elements of a benchmark such as parameters, measurements and metrics, and a ROS (Robot Operating System)-based testbed is developed. Expand

  • 2014
A novel RRT extend function for wheeled mobile robots that computes closed-loop forward simulations based on the kinematic model of the robot and enables the planner to efficiently generate smooth and feasible paths that connect any pairs of states. Expand
Metrics for performance benchmarking of multi-robot exploration
A collection of metrics to objectively compare different algorithms that can be applied to collaborative multi-robot exploration are presented and parameters that impact robotic fleet performances are identified. Expand
New brooms sweep clean - an autonomous robotic cleaning assistant for professional office cleaning
This paper presents the world's first autonomous cleaning robot prototype that masters both of these tasks and whose development was accompanied by the advice of a large cleaning company. Expand
Robots that can adapt like animals
An intelligent trial-and-error algorithm is introduced that allows robots to adapt to damage in less than two minutes in large search spaces without requiring self-diagnosis or pre-specified contingency plans, and may shed light on the principles that animals use to adaptation to injury. Expand
FreMEn: Frequency Map Enhancement for Long-Term Mobile Robot Autonomy in Changing Environments
Transformation of the spectral model to the time domain allows for the prediction of the future environment states, which improves the robot's long-term performance in changing environments. Expand
Spatio-temporal representation for long-term anticipation of human presence in service robotics
An efficient spatio-temporal model for mobile autonomous robots operating in human populated environments that is capable of long-term predictions of human presence, allowing mobile robots to schedule their services better and to plan their paths. Expand
Performance Evaluation of Human Detection Systems for Robot Safety
The results should help users determine if such a system will provide sufficient protection for people to be able to work safely in collaborative applications with industrial robots. Expand
