Abstract:
Networked robots represent the convergence of robotics, sensor networks and mobile ad-hoc
networks, with many applications and a growing market projected to be $200B in 2013. This
talk will focus on the fundamental problems and practical issues underlying the deployment
of large numbers of autonomously functioning robots. The central problem is the so-called
inverse problem of deriving individual robot behaviors for a desired group behavior. There are
numerous examples of group behavior in biology which suggest that analysis of swarming be-
haviors in biology may provide insight for the synthesis of collective behaviors for engineered
systems. I will present a methodology for modeling and analyzing such collective behaviors
and discuss architectures, abstractions and algorithms for the control of large networks of ro-
bots.
