An ASLab Research Seminar

Research on Networked Robot Systems at ISR/IST

Pedro Lima

Place: Aula Artigas, ETSII-UPM
Time: April 26, 2010 / 12:30-13:30

In this talk Prof. Lima will describe the research activities at the Intelligent Systems Lab of the Institute for Systems and Robotics at Instituto Superior Técnico, Technical University of Lisbon. Most of the talk will concentrate on research done on networked robot systems, composed of static and mobile sensors that cooperate to carry out a diversified set of tasks. The group is particularly interested on discrete event models of robotic tasks, prone to qualitative (e.g., formal verification) and quantitative (e.g., plan probability of success) analysis, as well as on active cooperative perception and planning under uncertainty. A brief overview of past and running projects on soccer robots, rescue robots and mobile robots cooperating with a camera network to interact with people will be presented. I will also talk about other "adventures" we are pursuing on bio- and social-sciences-inspired approaches to collective robotics.
