Advances in electronics and software are allowing the rapid development of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), capable of performing autonomous coordinated actions. Developments in the area of lithium polymer batteries and carbon fiber-reinforce plastic materials let UAVs become an aerial platform, that can be equipped with a variety of sensors such as cameras. Furthermore, it is also possible to mount communication modules on the UAV platform in order to let the UAVs work as communication…

This paper reformulated the manipulator con trol problem as direct control of manipulator motion in operational space—the space in which the task is originally described—rather than as control of the task's corresponding joint space motion obtained only after geometric and geometric transformation.

Flocks, herds and schools: A distributed behavioral model

This paper explores an approach based on simulation as an alternative to scripting the paths of each bird individually, an elaboration of a particle systems, with the simulated birds being the particles.

Self-Organizing Pedestrian Movement

The dynamics of pedestrian crowds is surprisingly predictable and the corresponding computer simulations are a valuable tool for developing optimized pedestrian facilities and way systems.
