The class of Discrete Event Systems (DES) are systems of which the dynamics consist of the occurrences of discrete events in the time domain. Typical examples of DES from everyday life are transport systems , production facilities or communication systems. Recently legged locomotion has been adressed from the point of view of DES. Here, the...

In this thesis, a swarm is defined as:<br/>”A swarm is a large number of homogenous, unsophisticated agents that interact locally<br/>among themselves and their environment, without any central control or management to<br/>yield a global behaviour to emerge.”<br/>The bigger perspective is to have the units within a swarm operate for a...

The mobile robots considered in this thesis are six legged "Zebro" robots. These mobile robots will use Radio Signal Strength (RSS) measurements to determine the distances towards other mobile robots and radio beacons placed in the surroundings. A combination of distance measurements and dead-reckoning is used to perform a localization of the...

A Camera Submodule for the Environment Observation Module for a Zebro robot was designed. It is able to collect and process data about obstacles on a Raspberry Pi and send this to the main processor of the Environment Observation module using UART. <br/>The two main functions that were implemented are a laser rangefinder based on triangulation...

Legged locomotion is an example of a discrete event system (DES) with only synchronization and no concurrency. This particular kind of DES can be framed in max-plus algebra, which consists of maximization and addition as its basic operations. Utilizing the max-plus operations between matrices, max-plus linear (MPL) system is constructed.<br/><br...

Nature has found many interesting solutions to similar problems that we face with robots. Swarming in robotics is an interesting field to reduce cost and risk, and provide a scalable solution to certain problems. The Zebro Project of the TU Delft performs research in the field of swarm robotics using the six legged robot, called a Zebro. Swarm...

The ZeBRo (Dutch abbreviation: Zesbenige Robot, six-legged robot), is a walking robot designed by the TU Delft, with its foundations on the RHex. The current version of the ZeBRo project, the DeciZebro, is made for the research to swarming in robotics, and is about the size of an A4-paper. <br/>To counter these shortcomings of CPG (a method to...

Imagine being lost in a desert with a bunch of friends, all of a sudden. Survival will be difficult. You will have mirages, distrust among friends and no means to leave landmarks on the sand. Unable to locate yourself, you will have no means to contact people with maps. The best you can do in such a situation is to stay together in the vicinity...
