Simulations Used as Experiments in Autonomous Mobile Robotics Francesco Amigoni and Monica Reggiani and Viola Schiaffonati
 

Summary: Simulations Used as Experiments in Autonomous Mobile Robotics
Francesco Amigoni and Monica Reggiani and Viola Schiaffonati
Abstract-- Autonomous mobile robotics has seen a recent
effort for the development of good experimental methodologies
that aim at providing more rigor to the experiments conducted
in the field. Simulations are becoming increasingly important
tools in experimental activities of autonomous mobile robotics,
but, so far, they have not been at the very center of attention
in the development of experimental methodologies. This paper
tries to stimulate the discussion on some issues related to
simulations and experiments, starting from the two following
questions:
what are simulations in autonomous mobile robotics?
what is the role of simulations in autonomous mobile
robotics?
I. INTRODUCTION
Experiments are essential ingredients of science, playing
a role both to confirm/refuse a theory and to find out new
theories. If a rigorous experimental approach has proved to
be crucial for natural sciences, it is reasonable to expect that
