View Point Planning for Inspecting Static and Dynamic Scenes with Multi-Robot Teams
(Virginia Tech, 2017-09-05)
We study the problem of viewpoint planning in static and dynamic scenes using multi-robot teams. This work is motivated by two applications: bridge inspection and environmental monitoring using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. ...
Reinforcement Learning with Gaussian Processes for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Navigation
(Virginia Tech, 2017-08-03)
We study the problem of Reinforcement Learning (RL) for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) navigation with the smallest number of real world samples possible. This work is motivated by applications of learning autonomous ...
Design and Implementation of a Scalable Real-Time Motor Controller Architecture for Humanoid Robots and Exoskeletons
(Virginia Tech, 2017-08-24)
Embedded systems for humanoid robots are required to be reliable, low in cost, scalable and robust. Most of the applications related to humanoid robots require efficient force control of Series Elastic Actuators (SEA). ...
Competitive Algorithms and System for Multi-Robot Exploration of Unknown Environments
(Virginia Tech, 2017-09-08)
We present an algorithm to explore an orthogonal polygon using a team of p robots. This algorithm combines ideas from information-theoretic exploration algorithms and computational geometry based exploration algorithms. ...
