Agents for distributed decision-making

S. Talukdar 2003 IEEE Power Engineering Society General Meeting (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37491), 2003

Agents are modules from which problem solving can be built. Structurally, an agent is a bundle of sensors, decision-makers and actuators; behaviorally, an agent is a mapping from an in-space (all the things the agent can sense) to an out-space (all things the agent can affect). Agents can be simple or compound. More specifically, lesser agents can be organized into ...


An application of the spectral kurtosis for early detection of subterranean termites

J. J. González de-la-Rosa; A. Moreno; A. Quirós; J. M. Guerrero; C. G. Puntonet 2007 15th European Signal Processing Conference, 2007

This paper deals with termite detection in a noisy environment using higher- order statistics (HOS). The results could be extrapolated to all impulse-like insect emissions. Sliding higher-order cumulants offer distinctive time instances, as a complement to the sliding variance, which only reveals power excesses in the signal; even for low-amplitude impulses. The spectral kurtosis reveals non-Gaussian characteristics (the peakedness of ...


A hierarchy of neuromechanical and robotic models of antenna-based wall following in cockroaches

Jusuk Lee; Owen Y. Loh; Noah J. Cowan 2007 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2007

It may come as no surprise that a simple "planar unicycle" (or "skate") model can successfully follow a wall at high speed under PD-control. What would be surprising is that such a simple control mechanism may underly the control of one of nature's fastest terrestrial insects, the American cockroach. For this paper, we implemented the same controller (up to scale) ...

M. Sekine; K. Umeda Proceedings. 2000 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2000) (Cat. No.00CH37113), 2000

The improvement of micro vision sensor is required for milli-machines and micromachines. This paper proposes a compound-eye-type micro vision sensor with simple structure for milli-machines. The sensor consists of only a photo sensor array and a cover. A prototype of the sensor is constructed. As an application of the sensor, detection of shape and motion is discussed.

Flexure Design Rules for Carbon Fiber Microrobotic Mechanisms

S. Avadhanula; R. S. Fearing Proceedings of the 2005 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 2005

Mechanisms utilizing rigid links and relatively small flexural joints are very suitable for fabrication at the meso scale. The Micromechanical Flying Insect (MFI) project at UC Berkeley has developed a simple fabrication method which works very well at the scale where the links are a few millimeters in length and the flexures are few hundred microns in length. Previous analysis ...

  • Multi-Stage Micro Rockets for Robotic Insects

    One of the main challenges for sustained flight of current aerial micro robots is the low energy density available from common power sources. In this paper we propose solid rocket fuel powered micro thrusters as a high energy density actuation method for aerial micro robots. In a multi stage configuration these thrusters can be used for intermittent flight which can decrease the energetic cost of locomotion. In particular we focus on the fabrication method and characterization of multistage micro thrusters with a diameter of 3mm and 6.4mm. We demonstrate a sustained and repeatable thrust force of up to 35mN for a duration of up to 42s and a multi-stage designs with a time delay of up to 4.7s between the propulsion phases. Furthermore, we present a take-off trajectory of a 10cm rocket glider with an integrated micro thruster as propulsion mechanism showing that the technologies developed can be used to successfully power micro robots in flight. Future work will focus on control and flight dynamics of micro thruster powered gliders. Wider applications of similar thrusters can include other robotic applications where low weight and high force is important such as for jumping or running robots.1

  • Attracting Similar Shapes Towards Each Other

    This paper draws an analogy between the way insects use vision to move themselves with respect to local landmarks, and the problem of moving objects relative to each other in vision-guided robotic assembly. In particular, an algorithm is presented for attracting similar shapes together which was directly inspired by a model of navigation in honeybees, and which shares the same characteristics of robustness and immunity to noise. In particular, the algorithm can rotate, translate and scale one 2D shape to align it with another despite the presence of significant distortion and missing or extraneous features.

  • How insects learn about the sun's course: alternative modeling approaches

    One of the major puzzles in animal behavior, arid a major problem to be solved in the design of robots, concerns how spatial patterns in the environment can be encoded internally and used for navigation in a complex natural environment. Most work on this issue has concerned landmark learning. This paper deals with a phenomenon of spatial learning that is at least as widespread in the animal world as landmark learning, but has received comparatively little attention. The phenomenon is the ability to learn the course of the sun relative to earth-bound features, and thus to use the sun as a true compass. After reviewing behavioral evidence from bees and ants, two particularly well studied species, we evaluate the applicability of symbolic and connectionist approaches to modeling the internal representation of this environmental pattern.
