I gave a talk on “Multi-Robot Coordination” at the International Summer School on Artificial Intelligence in Udine on July 7, 2020. Download the presentation slides. Now that robots have evolved from bulky platforms to agile devices, a challenge is to combine multiple robots into an integrated autonomous system, offering functionality […]
I gave a keynote on “How to Act as Team – Motion Planning in Multi-Robot Systems” at the Austrian Robotics Workshop 2022 in Villach.
Planning the collision-free, simultaneous movement of multiple agents is a fundamental problem in multi-robot systems and becomes particularly challenging in highly confined environments. Hikmet Beyoglu addresses this problem in his master thesis by first searching for collision-free paths in a discretized environment and then optimizing the agents’ dynamically feasible trajectories […]
Bernhard Rinner gave a lecture on “Self-awareness for autonomous systems” as part of the AI Excellence Lecture Series of the Artificial Intelligence Doctoral Academy. Abstract Self-awareness is a broad concept borrowed from cognitive science and psychology that describes the property of a system, which has knowledge of “itself,” based on […]
