  1. 1. On Making Robots Proactive

    Författare :Jasmin Grosinger; Alessandro Saffiotti; Federico Pecora; Fiora Pirri; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Proactive robots; Goal Reasoning; Knowledge representation and reasoning; Fuzzy logic;

    Sammanfattning : The question addressed in this thesis is: Can we make robots proactive? Proactivity is understood as self-initiated, anticipatory action. This entails the ability to generate own goals and pursue them. Our work is based on the assumption that proactivity makes robots more acceptable in human-inhabited environments. LÄS MER

  2. 2. A component framework for autonomous mobile robots

    Författare :Anders Orebäck; Henrik I. Christiensen; Iiiah R. Nourbakhsh; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datorteknik; robotics; mobile robots; autonomour robots; component-based software engineering; software architectures; Datorteknik; Computer engineering; Datorteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The major problem of robotics research today is that there is a barrier to entry into robotics research. Robot system software is complex and a researcher that wishes to concentrate on one particular problem often needs to learn about details, dependencies and intricacies of the complete system.

  3. 3. The Useworthiness of Robots for People with Physical Disabilities

    Författare :Håkan Eftring; Certec - Rehabiliteringsteknik och Design; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Page-turning; End-effector; RAID; Manus; Independence; Needs Analysis; Simplified Robot Use; Automatic Grasping; Case Studies.; Ethics; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; rehabilitation; revalidation; kinesitherapy; Physical medicine; Rehabilitation Robotics; Robots; Physical Disabilities; Useworthiness; Usability;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with robotics and the new possibilities it offers people with physical disabilities. I focus on the user and the use of the technology and, in particular, on what makes robotic aids worth using - useworthiness as distinguished from usability. LÄS MER

  4. 4. From Ants to Service Robots : an Exploration in Stigmergy-Based Navigation Algorithms

    Författare :Ali Abdul Khaliq; Alessandro Saffiotti; Federico Pecora; Andrea Omicini; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Stigmergy; Minimalistic Robots; Mobile robot navigation; RFID technology; Multi-robot system; Path planning; Localization; Map building;

    Sammanfattning : Navigation is a core functionality of mobile robots. To navigate autonomously, a mobile robot typically relies on internal maps, self-localization, and path planning. Reliable navigation usually comes at the cost of expensive sensors and often requires significant computational overhead. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Indoor Navigation for Mobile Robots : Control and Representations

    Författare :Philipp Althaus; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :mobile robots; robot navigation; indoor navigation; behaviour based robotics; hybrid deliberative systems; dynamical systems approach; topological maps; symbol anchoring; autonomous mapping; human-robot interaction;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with various aspects of indoor navigationfor mobile robots. For a system that moves around in ahousehold or office environment,two major problems must betackled. First, an appropriate control scheme has to bedesigned in order to navigate the platform. Second, the form ofrepresentations of the environment must be chosen. LÄS MER
