The goal of this research is to provide a new and novel formal framework
for the analysis of probabilistic and behavior-based robotic algorithms for
both single and multirobot applications. The resulting methods and tools
will provide a basis for establishing guarantees of performance of these
algorithms in complex real-world environmental situations, which is crucial
for the critical real-time real-world needs of C-WMD search, analysis, and
recovery tasks. We cannot assume the luxury of a do-over; we must get it
right the first time.
Specifically, the Mobile Robot Laboratory is focusing on:
- Scenario development
for C-WMD application in conjunction with NIST testbed environment
evaluation procedures and metric development for both simulation and
development to accommodate new theoretical framework provided by
This research is funded by DTRA, the Defense
Threat Reduction Agency, and is a collaboration between Georgia Tech's
Mobile Robot Lab and Fordham University's Robotics and Computer Vision Lab.
