Building Terrain-Covering Ant Robots: A Feasibility Study
Robotics researchers have studied robots that can follow trails laid by other robots. We, on the other hand, study robots that leave trails in the terrain to cover closed terrain r...

An Architecture for Distributed Environment Sensing with Application to Robotic Cliff Exploration
Future planetary exploration missions will use cooperative robots to explore and sample rough terrain. To succeed robots will need to cooperatively acquire and share data. Here a c...

Distributed, Physics-Based Control of Swarms of Vehicles
We introduce a framework, called "physicomimetics," that provides distributed control of large collections of mobile physical agents in sensor networks. The agents sense...

Hormone-Inspired Self-Organization and Distributed Control of Robotic Swarms
The control of robot swarming in a distributed manner is a difficult problem because global behaviors must emerge as a result of many local actions. This paper uses a bio-inspired ...

Propagation of Uncertainty in Cooperative Multirobot Localization: Analysis and Experimental Results
This paper examines the problem of cooperative localization for the case of large groups of mobile robots. A Kalman filter estimator is implemented and tested for this purpose. The...

A Set Theoretic Approach to Dynamic Robot Localization and Mapping
This paper addresses the localization and mapping problem for a robot moving through a (possibly) unknown environment where indistinguishable landmarks can be detected. A set theo...
