MAE Seminar: 4:00 PM in 205 Thurston Hall Tuesday November 11th, 2014
Speaker: Dylan Shell
Texas A&M University
Multi-Robot Coordination via Matching Algorithms
Dr. Shell describes his presentation:
In this talk I will describe recent research toward the goal of engineering multi-robot systems to form networks of efficient, cooperative, taskable agents. I shall consider variations of the multi-robot task allocation (assignment) problem, wherein one aims at finding the best matching between a set of robots and a set of tasks so that the team’s performance will be optimized. This assignment problem is one of the most popular formulations for optimizing the group synergy. I’ll describe new algorithms and results that show improvements in performance, scalability, and robustness for general-purpose coordinated mobile robot systems.
