Locally-optimal multi-robot navigation under delaying disturbances using homotopy constraints

We study the problem of reliable motion coordination strategies for teams of mobile robots when any of the robots can be temporarily stopped by an exogenous disturbance at any time. We assume that an arbitrary multi-robot planner initially …


Online planning for multi-robot active perception with self-organising maps

We propose a self-organising map (SOM) algorithm as a solution to a new multi-goal path planning problem for active perception and data collection tasks. We optimise paths for a multi-robot team that aims to maximally observe a set of nodes in the …


Autonomous navigation of micro aerial vehicles using high-rate and low-cost sensors

The combination of visual and inertial sensors for state estimation has recently found wide echo in the robotics community, especially in the aerial robotics field, due to the lightweight and complementary characteristics of the sensors data.


A sensor-based approach for fault detection and diagnosis for robotic systems

As we rely more on robots, thus it becomes important that a continuous successful operation is maintained. Unfortunately, these sophisticated, machines are susceptible to different faults. Some faults might quickly deteriorate into a catastrophe.


Competitive target search with multi-agent teams: symmetric and asymmetric communication constraints

We study a search game in which two multi-agent teams compete to find a stationary target at an unknown location. Each team plays a mixed strategy over the set of search sweep-patterns allowed from its respective random starting locations.

Über diese Zeitschrift

Autonomous Robots reports on the theory and applications of robotic systems capable of some degree of self-sufficiency. It features papers that include performance data on actual robots in the real world. Coverage includes: control of autonomous robots · real-time vision · autonomous wheeled and tracked vehicles · legged vehicles · computational architectures for autonomous systems · distributed architectures for learning, control and adaptation · studies of autonomous robot systems · sensor fusion · theory of autonomous systems · terrain mapping and recognition · self-calibration and self-repair for robots · self-reproducing intelligent structures · genetic algorithms as models for robot development.

The focus is on the ability to move and be self-sufficient, not on whether the system is an imitation of biology. Of course, biological models for robotic systems are of major interest to the journal since living systems are prototypes for autonomous behavior.
