Iterative residual tuning for system identification and sim-to-real robot learning

Robots are increasingly learning complex skills in simulation, increasing the need for realistic simulation environments. Existing techniques for approximating real-world physics with a simulation require extensive observation data and/or …


Nonlinear observability of unicycle multi-robot teams subject to nonuniform environmental disturbances

In this work, we consider the problem of localizing a team of robots, without access to direct pose measurements, under the influence of nonuniform environmental disturbances and measurement bias. Specifically, we are interested in the conditions …


Spatially-dependent Bayesian semantic perception under model and localization uncertainty

Semantic perception can provide autonomous robots operating under uncertainty with more efficient representation of their environment and better ability for correct loop closures than only geometric features. However, accurate inference of …


Exploration of the applicability of probabilistic inference for learning control in underactuated autonomous underwater vehicles

Underwater vehicles are employed in the exploration of dynamic environments where tuning of a specific controller for each task would be time-consuming and unreliable as the controller depends on calculated mathematical coefficients in idealised …

Online trajectory planning and control of a MAV payload system in dynamic environments

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) can be used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches for path planning of MAV swung payload …

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.
