Various problems related to Random Walk in Random Environments have been researched intensively over the past 40 years by both the mathematics and physics communities. The setup of these problems is quite simple: one defines a Random Walk of choice and allows it to traverse a Random Environment that influences the Random Walk in a predetermined...

In recent years, visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) have gained significant attention and found wide-ranging applications in diverse scenarios. Recent advances in computer vision and deep learning also enrich visual SLAM capabilities in scene understanding and large-scale operation. However, despite remarkable performance in...

Recent progress in multiple micro aerial vehicle (MAV) systems has demonstrated autonomous navigation in static environments. Yet, there are limited works regarding the autonomous navigation of multiple MAVs in dynamic and unknown environments. The challenge arises from the complexity of the motion planning problem, which requires the MAVs to...

In the past few years, online convex optimization (OCO) has received notable attention in the control literature thanks to its flexible real-time nature and powerful performance guarantees. In this article, we propose new step-size rules and OCO algorithms that simultaneously exploit gradient predictions, function predictions and dynamics,...

Particle-based dynamic occupancy maps were proposed in recent years to model the obstacles in dynamic environments. Current particle-based maps describe the occupancy status in discrete grid form and suffer from the grid size problem, wherein a large grid size is unfavorable for motion planning while a small grid size lowers efficiency and...

Autonomous robots will profoundly impact our society, making our roads safer, reducing labor costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and improving our life quality. However, to make that happen, robots need to navigate among humans, which is extremely difficult. Firstly, humans do not explicitly communicate their intentions and use intuition...

Humans and other biological bipedal walkers are extraordinarily agile and robust. This is especially apparent when certain features of the environment are unknown such as unexpected downsteps (for example, suddenly walking off the side-walk or not expecting the last stair when descending). Humans can negotiate these downsteps ---both expected...

Planning safe motions for multi-robot systems is crucial for deploying them in real-world applications such as target tracking, environmental monitoring, and multi-view cinematography. Traditional approaches mainly solve the multi-robot motion planning problem in a deterministic manner, where the robot states and system models are perfectly...

This article illustrates that the task design and problem selection are of characteristic influence to evoke sense-reason-act programming (SRA) among primary school pupils when programming robots. Research shows that the task design influences the development of computational thinking (CT). The literature provides evidence that the context,...

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are being integrated into all spheres of life, for a wide range of application in civil, commercial and military applications in both indoor and outdoor environments. UAV onboard intelligence is a paramount requirement in the realisation of UAV Traffic Management System (UTM) and Air Traffic Management (ATM)...

Robotic navigation in environments shared with other robots or humans remains challenging because the intentions of the surrounding agents are not directly observable and the environment conditions are continuously changing. Local trajectory optimization methods, such as model predictive control (MPC), can deal with those changes but require...

Positioning and stabilizing a catheter at the required location inside a vessel or the heart is a complicated task in interventional cardiology. In this review we provide a structured classification of catheter stabilization mechanisms to systematically assess their challenges during cardiac interventions. Commercially available, patented,...

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) can be used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches for path planning of MAV swung payload system either compute conservative minimal-swing trajectories or pre-generate agile collision-free...

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...

This paper presents a distributed method for formation control of a homogeneous team of aerial or ground mobile robots navigating in environments with static and dynamic obstacles. Each robot in the team has a finite communication and visibility radius and shares information with its neighbors to coordinate. Our approach leverages both...

Quadrotor UAV's have become extremely popular over the last decade, as they combine great agility with mechanic simplicity. For tasks such as area surveillance or maintaining a communication network, the deployment of multi-agent systems is required. In these scenarios, it often is necessary for the robot teams to navigate in formation while...

In the near future mobile robots, such as personal robots or mobile manipulators, will share the workspace with other robots and humans. We present a method for mission and motion planning that applies to small teams of robots performing a task in an environment with moving obstacles, such as humans. Given a mission specification written in...

The topic of company competences is approached by many theories in literature, each from its own perspective. In this thesis the focus is mainly on the competence-based view. The competence-based perspective claims that core competences are the source of sustainable competitive advantage, and are the unique capabilities which span over multiple...
