报告题目：Behaviour based Control of Intelligent Robots
内容简介：After recent advancement of computing and robotics technologies, intelligent robots are soon ready to serve us in our home, hospital, office and everywhere. They are mobile, autonomous and interactive, inspired from behaviour demonstration of biological systems. There are several new application opportunities for these behaviour-based robots to be deployed in air, on land and underwater. However, these robots face several engineering challenges. Firstly, they must deal with uncertainty within the systems, such as sensor noise, actuator inaccuracy, and components failure. Secondly, they must handle a huge uncertainty in the real world, which is dynamically changing over time. Thirdly, they must communicate with and navigate around humans in order to provide services. In this talk, I will briefly overview the current state of art behaviour-based robotics technologies and present our research work toward the development of advanced theory and technologies, based on inspiration from biological systems. More specifically, behaviour modelling, reactive control and swarm robotics are discussed respectively, and some preliminary results are demonstrated via video.
