Since late 90’s of the last century, rapid advances in technology, mechanical engineering, miniaturization, telecommunications and informatics enabled development and routine deployment of sophisticated robots in many real world domains. Besides many applications in assembly industry, e.g., in car, or electronics assembly lines, defense organizations, together with space exploration and mining industries belong to the most demanding and optimistic users of robotic technology [25]. Especially in…

Dynamic Trajectory Replanning for Unmanned Aircrafts Supporting Tactical Missions in Urban Environments
This paper presents an idea based on estimating running time of replanning tasks and evaluated its impact to safeness of replAnning (e.g., avoiding to get to an inconsistent state).
Cooperative agent navigation in partially unknown urban environments
The integrated multi-agent system for cooperative navigation in partially unknown urban environment is introduced and validated using vehicle physics based simulation to support the navigation of a convoy by a set of unmanned vehicles in an urban environment to avoid convoy stops or u-turns and minimize the total traveled distance of all vehicles.

Autonomous UAV Surveillance in Complex Urban Environments
A novelocclusion-aware surveillance algorithm is proposed based on a decomposition of the surveillance problem into a variant of the 3D art gallery problem and an instance of traveling salesman problem for Dubins vehicles to confirm the importance of occlusion-aware flight path planning.

Multi-agent Plan Repairing ∗
This work presents a conceptual framework formalising the problem of multi-agent planning and subsequent plan repair and introduces a sequel of three algorithms to evaluate and compare one of them with re-planning from scratch in a synthetic domain ofmulti-robot cranes.
Towards Simulation-Aided Design of Multi-Agent Systems
Simulation-aided design of multi-agent systems (SADMAS) is proposed, a methodology tightly integrating simulations of the target system into the MAS application development process, using mixed-mode simulation, a simulation where parts of the deployed application operate in the target environment and parts remain simulated.
Decentralized multi-agent plan repair in dynamic environments
It is hypothesize that in decentralized systems, where coordination is enforced to achieve joint objectives, attempts to repair failed multi-agent plans should lead to lower communication overhead than replanning from scratch.
