JProf. Fang-JIng Wu will give the lecture starting from summer semester 2018.

Goals of the Lecture

The course introduces concepts, methods and the performance evaluation of wireless networking, distributed problems solving, cooperative algorithms and swarm based behavior to accomplish easy deployment and appropriate mission scheduling for networked robotics systems



Concept of Operations

    Definitions, Impact and History of Networked Robot Systems, Robot Systems, Use Cases, Business Cases

Information & Communication Technologies

    Mobile Radio Networks, Robust Mesh/Relay Communication Protocols, fast handovers, real-time requirements

Swarm strategies

    Self learning, controlled mobility, autonomous behavior and learning, distributed systems

Decentralized Mission Scheduling & Task Distribution

    Algorithms for strategic goal and tactical task management, autonomous agents, role models, role switching, association of tasks and responsibilities, task vs. communication performance

Performance Evaluation

    Event-Driven Simulation, random generators, system models

    (channel, mobility, protocols), statistical relevance, experiments, analytical modeling

    (Markov state models)



Slides of all lectures will be supplied online.



The final exam will be an oral (30 minutes) exam and final technical report. 

  • Students are expected to propose to their interest topics related to the Networked Mobile Robot Systems and do small literature review on this topic for writing the final report. Students are expect to study at least 3 quality research papers relevant to your interest topic.  
  • This final report must contain 1) a summary of research issues in these papers and technical approaches, 2) comparison between these proposed approaches, and 3) your ideas for potential enhancement or point out potential research topics relevant to your interest topic. 
  • Student are expected to present the content of your final report in oral presentation. 


Requirements (Prerequisites)

We assume that the participants have basic knowledge of mathematical modeling. A basic understanding of fundamental control concepts and distributes systems is helpful but not mandatory
