SACT Seminar: Algorithms for robot navigation

Time: 11:00 am Friday, 16th December 2016.

Location: SIT 459

Speaker: Prof. Sándor Fekete, TU Braunschweig

Title: Algorithms for robot navigation: From optimizing individual
robots to particle swarms

Planning and optimizing the motion of one or several robots poses a wide range of problems.
What positions should one powerful robot pick to scan a given area with obstacles?
How can we coordinate a group of weaker robots to explore an unknown environment?
How can we ensure that a swarm of very simple robots with local capabilities can deal with conflicting global requirements?
And how can a particle swarm perform complex operations? We will demonstrate how an appropriate spectrum of algorithmic methods in combination with geometry can be used to achieve progress on all of these challenges.
