  • Rock Your World??-??Encouraging Process Perpetual Motion

    Every aspect of ensuring quality is an evolutionary process. In order to keep the overall process alive, one needs a little dynamic tension, something to keep the idea of continuous improvement moving forward. Methods to help the group cope with the evolution include the following: using diverse, cross- functional team members; executing continuous process improvements; and migrating activities into an automated tool. A crucial ingredient in process improvement is diversification. One can help encourage active engagement in collaborative process improvement (CPI) by publishing process helpers on the local intranet. The success of any innovation involves early adopters, the majority, and laggards. The rate at which employees adopt any change can be adjusted in several key ways. Each can raise or lower the stickiness of the change through the following variables: relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability and observability.

    Multiagent systems is an expanding field that blends classical fields like game theory and decentralized control with modern fields like computer science and machine learning. This monograph provides a concise introduction to the subject, covering the theoretical foundations as well as more recent developments in a coherent and readable manner. The text is centered on the concept of an agent as decision maker. Chapter 1 is a short introduction to the field of multiagent systems. Chapter 2 covers the basic theory of singleagent decision making under uncertainty. Chapter 3 is a brief introduction to game theory, explaining classical concepts like Nash equilibrium. Chapter 4 deals with the fundamental problem of coordinating a team of collaborative agents. Chapter 5 studies the problem of multiagent reasoning and decision making under partial observability. Chapter 6 focuses on the design of protocols that are stable against manipulations by self- interested agents. Chapter 7 provides a s ort introduction to the rapidly expanding field of multiagent reinforcement learning. The material can be used for teaching a half-semester course on multiagent systems covering, roughly, one chapter per lecture.

  • Hierarchical Approaches to Concurrency, Multiagency, and Partial Observability

    In this chapter the authors summarize their research in hierarchical probabilistic models for decision making involving concurrent action, multiagent coordination, and hidden state estimation in stochastic environments. A hierarchical model for learning concurrent plans is first described for observable single agent domains, which combines compact state representations with temporal process abstractions to determine how to parallelize multiple threads of activity. A hierarchical model for multiagent coordination is then presented, where primitive joint actions and joint states are hidden. Here, high-level coordination is learned by exploiting overall task structure, which greatly speeds up convergence by abstracting from low- level steps that do not need to be synchronized. Finally, a hierarchical frame-work for hidden state estimation and action is presented, based on multi-resolution statistical modeling of the past history of observations and actions.

  • State Estimation for Legged Robots: Consistent Fusion of Leg Kinematics and IMU

    This paper introduces a state estimation framework for legged robots that allows estimating the full pose of the robot without making any assumptions about the geometrical structure of its environment. This is achieved by means of an Observability Constrained Extended Kalman Filter that fuses kinematic encoder data with on-board IMU measurements. By including the absolute position of all footholds into the filter state, simple model equations can be formulated which accurately capture the uncertainties associated with the intermittent ground contacts. The resulting filter simultaneously estimates the position of all footholds and the pose of the main body. In the algorithmic formulation, special attention is paid to the consistency of the linearized filter: it maintains the same observability properties as the nonlinear system, which is a prerequisite for accurate state estimation. The presented approach is implemented in simulation and validated experimentally on an actual quadrupedal robot.

  • Linear Dynamic Systems

    This chapter discusses the dynamic models used in Kalman filtering, and especially those represented by systems of linear differential equations. It demonstrates, using specific examples, how one goes about building such models and how one can go from a model using differential equations to one suitable for Kalman filtering. The chapter characterizes the measurable outputs of dynamic systems as functions of the internal states and inputs of the system. The treatment is deterministic, in order to define functional relationships between inputs and outputs. Observability is the issue of whether the state of a dynamic system with a known model is uniquely determinable from its inputs and outputs. It is essentially a property of the given system model. A given linear dynamic system model with a given linear input/output model is considered observable if and only if its state is uniquely determinable from the model definition, its inputs, and its outputs.

  • ARCHGEN: Automated Synthesis of Analog Systems

    High-level design of analog systems is an open area that needs to be addressed with the emerging trend of integrating mixed analog-digital systems. Design methods compatible across the analog-digital boundaries would expedite the design process, and in this paper we address analog high-level design issues. An approach for systems-level synthesis of a class of analog systems is presented. A behavioral level for the analog domain is characterized in terms of state equations and transfer functions in the continuous and discrete domains. State-space representations are generated from transfer function specifications that exhibit system level characteristics such as controllability and observability as well as decoupled and parallel architectures. These state-space representations are synthesized into behavioral-level, technology-independent architectures composed of analog functional components. An intermediate architecture in a circuit implementation technology is synthesized from the behavioral architecture. The various algorithmic procedures for synthesis are implemented in the program ARCHGEN. Behavioral simulation is used for architecture verification and design space exploration.
