When the User Is Instrumental to Robot Goals: First Try – Agent Uses Agent
2008 Edition, Volume 2, December 1, 2008 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

To create a robot with a mind of its own, we extended a formalized version of a model that explains affect-driven interaction with mechanisms for goal-directed behavior. We ran simulation experiments with intelligent software agents and found that agents preferred...

Distributed control for unit-compressible robots: goal-recognition, locomotion, and splitting
2002 Edition, Volume 7, December 1, 2002 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We present a distributed self-reconfiguring robot system with unit-compressible modules called the Crystal robot. A new design for the Crystal is presented that decouples the x axis and y axis actuation, has on-board sensing and has...

Hot-swapping robot task goals in reactive formal synthesis
2014 Edition, December 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We consider the problem of synthesizing robot controllers to realize a task that unpredictably changes with time. Tasks are formally expressed in the GR(1) fragment of temporal logic, in which some of the variables are set by an adversary. The task changes...

An efficient motion planning algorithm for robot multi-goal tasks
2013 Edition, May 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Motion planning is a fundamental aspect of every robotic system. The objective is to generate an efficient and collision-free path for the robot to reach a certain number of reference points. This paper presents a method to define a...

Personalised self-explanation by robots: The role of goals versus beliefs in robot-action explanation for children and adults
2017 Edition, August 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A good explanation takes the user who is receiving the explanation into account. We aim to get a better understanding of user preferences and the differences between children and adults who receive explanations from a robot. We implemented a...

Tradeoffs in making the behaviour-based robotic systems goal-directed
1998 Edition, Volume 2, January 1, 1998 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A number of behaviour-based autonomous robots with varying degree of reactive functionality have been built. The principle of avoiding an explicit representation of goals inside these robots has limited their achievements to navigation. As a result reactive...

Goal inferences about robot behavior Goal inferences and human response behaviors
2013 Edition, March 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This explorative research focused on the goal inferences human observers draw based on a robot's behavior, and the extent to which those inferences predict people's behavior in response to that robot. Results show that different robot behaviors cause...

DMP Based Trajectory Tracking for a Nonholonomic Mobile Robot With Automatic Goal Adaptation and Obstacle Avoidance
2019 Edition, May 1, 2019 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Dynamic Movement Primitive (DMP) which is popular for motion planning of a robot manipulator, has been adapted for a nonholonomic mobile robot to track the desired trajectory. DMP is a simple damped spring model with a forcing function, which learns...

The State of Robotics Education: Proposed Goals for Positively Transforming Robotics Education at Postsecondary Institutions
2017 Edition, Volume 24, September 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This article presents the results of an online survey of faculty opinions on the state of robotics education with a focus on three topics: degree programs, introductory robotics courses, and educational resources. There were 67 institutions represented, the...

Goal! Robot soccer for undergraduate students
2004 Edition, Volume 11, March 1, 2004 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper, a new approach to the undergraduate capstone design experience that has been used successfully for the past five years in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at BYU. The project is built around a robot soccer...
