Multi-Agent Systems, often referred to a network of loosely connected autonomous units, are widely used to model the dynamics of crowds, vehicles, robots and swarms in traffic management, biological environment, distributed control and communication technologies. Recently, the study of multi-agent systems is rapidly growing due to the beneficial...

AGVs have seen an upward trend in development over the last 60 years. The technology has developed from mechanical bumpers and guided wire navigation to contactless sensors and free navigation technique in the current age. Further, the control on AGVs has moved from central control system to local intelligence which opens up various...

Motion planning for Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) in dynamic environments is an extensively studied and complex problem. State of the art methods provide approximate solutions that make conservative assumptions to provide safety and feasibility. We aim to outperform current methods by following a trajectory optimization-based approach,...

An often preferred method to control a multi-agent system is by a network-decentralised controller. Network-decentralised means that each agent only has knowledge about its own state and the state of its neighbouring agents. In this thesis the multi-agent system consists of holonomic robots moving in a 2-dimensional configuration space. Each...

To reduce the number of traffic accidents on the roads, nowadays computers are aiding humans or taking over control from humans in vehicles. The necessity of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) in vehicles is growing. New vehicles are being equipped with ADAS, like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), to avoid head-to-tail collisions. Still,...

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) are increasingly being used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches to MAV swung payload system path planning have primarily focused on pre-generating (agile) collision-free, or conservative...

At the Lion Foundation a hunting simulator is used to stimulate the hunting instincts and skills of lions and tigers, in order to improve their health and increase chances of relocation into the wild. The hunting simulator is an animal enclosure wherein a piece of meat, used as prey, is moved by means of a joystick-controlled cable-driven system...

Due to the increasing complexity of controlling Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), researchers have been trying to let automation take part of the UAV control in order to eliminate human error and reduce the workload of the operator. Such a system has been developed for UAV teleoperators which incorporates haptic feedback on the control stick...

This thesis presents a new workflow for path finding through an octree representation of an indoor point cloud. I applied the following steps: 1) the point cloud is processed so it fits best in an octree; 2) during the octree generation the interior empty nodes are identified and further processed; 3) for each interior empty node the distance to...

A current limitation of using Micro Air Vehicles in teams is the high risk of collisions between members. Knowledge of relative location is needed in order to perform evasive maneuvers from such collisions. We propose an on-board Bluetooth-based relative localization scheme. Bluetooth is a light-weight and energy efficient communication...

The thesis contributes to the pre-collision strategies of robot manipulators by proposing a real-time implementable collision avoidance scheme. The collision is avoided by a braking controller that is activated by a braking trajectory predictor. The predictor provides distances of the end-effector to the object/human in the environment and...

The so-called A-double long heavy vehicle combination is a 32 meter long and up to 80 tonnes heavy double-trailer truck widely used in Canada and Australia today, and will be more abundant on the road also in Europe in the near future. They have the potential to decrease road transport cost, traffic congestion and generate lower emissions than...

Construction sites are among the most dangerous work environments. Worldwide, thousands of workers are injured or killed while working with or around machinery. For Volvo Construction Equipment, safety of the workers is one of the core values. The company strives for the vision of "Zero accidents with Volvo Group Products " through high quality...

This research investigates a neuromuscular analysis based tuning algorithm for haptic cues that has been hypothesized to simultaneously improve safety and workload when compared to heuristic tuning, applied to a haptic collision avoidance system for unmanned aircraft teleoperation. This novel tuning method considers the combined stiffness of the...
