A representation method based on the probability of collision for safe robot navigation in domestic environments

This paper introduces a three-dimensional volumetric representation for safe navigation. It is based on the OctoMap representation framework that probabilistically fuses sensor measurements to represent the occupancy probability of volumes. To …


Autonomous robotic exploration using a utility function based on Rényi’s general theory of entropy

In this paper we present a novel information-theoretic utility function for selecting actions in a robot-based autonomous exploration task. The robot’s goal in an autonomous exploration task is to create a complete, high-quality map of an unknown …

Reactive mission and motion planning with deadlock resolution avoiding dynamic obstacles

In the near future mobile robots, such as personal robots or mobile manipulators, will share the workspace with other robots and humans. We present a method for mission and motion planning that applies to small teams of robots performing a task in …


Relative motion estimation using visual–inertial optical flow

This paper proposes a method to measure the motion of a moving rigid body using a hybrid visual–inertial sensor. The rotational velocity of the moving object is computed from visual optical flow by solving a depth-independent bilinear constraint …


Range-only SLAM for robot-sensor network cooperation

This work is motivated by schemes of robot-sensor network cooperation where sensor nodes—beacons—are used as landmarks for range-only (RO) simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). In most existing RO-SLAM techniques beacons are considered as …

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.

IT-Risikomanagement im Produktionsumfeld

Mit der stetigen Zunahme der IT in Produktionsumgebungen steigt mit der Effizienz auch die Gefährdung gegenüber Schadsoftware oder Hackerangriffen. Best-Practices aus dem Bereich der Office-IT eignen sich leider oftmals nicht für Produktionsumgebungen. Dieser Beitrag erläutert die Gründe hierfür und liefert eine Übersicht vorhandener Best-Practice-Dokumente für das Produktionsumfeld. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
