Multi-Robot Position Tracking ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Accurate navigation is just one of the many challenges for successfully coordinating multiple robot interaction. It is especially important when trying to quantify the success of new techniques being developed to achieve coordinated formation maneuvering. This paper presents the experimental procedures followed while determining robot navigation error along with an evaluation of the resultant measurements. An inexpensive, easily configurable, camera system is presented that shows the potential to provide accurate position information. Along with a description of the system configuration, test procedures and test data are presented and evaluated. Finally, a comparison of the robot navigation error to that of the proposed camera system is presented
Formation Maneuvering Using Passive Acoustic Communications ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Interest in the use of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) for both commercial and military uses is growing. Control of UUVs poses a difficult problem because traditional methods of communication and navigation, i.e. radio and GPS, are not effective due to the properties of seawater. Control and communication algorithms were developed to carry out multiple UUV formation maneuvering using acoustic communications and first tested in computer simulation and then on mobile robots. Three control schemes, classic logic, behavior, and neural network were tested in line formations in both simulator and lab environments. Results and issues are discussed along with future directions

Objective Based Dynamic Navigation Planning ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper discusses research efforts at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in the area of environmentally adaptive navigation and dynamic mission planning. Presented in this paper is the system architecture being developed for the accomplishment of objective based dynamic navigation. A simulator is being constructed that incorporates this architecture and its design is presented. This simulator will enable the future development of specific mission behavior modules

Simulator Development for Multiple Unmanned Underwater Vessels (Full Draft) ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper is about the development of a system that will simulate the operation of multiple Unmanned Underwater Vessels (UUV). The simulator is being designed to support the research efforts of the Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) team of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), located at Stennis Space Center. In this paper we will discuss the functionality and architecture of a simulator that will support this research. Our approach is to use a network of PC's with a vessel simulation running on each PC. An additional PC will host our Central Simulation Processes that will display simulation progress and serve as a central control for shared data and communications. This calls tor the ability to create a flexible distributed real-time system that can synchronize vessel interaction in a team setting. Various combinations of simulated and physical vessel types must be allowed to support the different team member roles and our phased development approach. We present a detailed description of the architecture proposed for our simulator and discuss its operation. Finally we will present our observation of the performance of a prototype implementation and discuss our future plans for development and testing
Control/Learning Architectures for Use in Robots Operating in Unstructured Environments ( )

The LSU Robo-Tiger project is a joint effort involving LSU's Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Athletic departments. The idea was conceived by Dr. S.S. Iyengar and Dr. Lynn Jelinski late in the fall semester of 1999. The goal was to build a cybernetic tiger to be used to help the school mascot, Mike the Tiger, with his duties at the schools various athletic functions. In doing so, it was hoped the project would not only catch the imagination of the students and faculty, but also provide a viable research platform for studying various issues pertaining to mobile robots in unstructured environments. Under the direction of Dr. S.S. Iyengar, the LSU Computer Science department's Robot Research Lab has conducted preliminary studies to determine the feasibility of the project. The first phase of the project consisted of constructing, modifying and programming a small prototype of the tiger. A series of three prototypes were used to identify the various issues involved in developing a full sized robotic tiger. Although the resulting prototypes are much simplified versions of the final product, many of the ideas, concepts, algorithms and construction methods are applicable
