CPSRC Seminar Series - Ants Don't Use WiFi: Enabling Robotic Agents to Collaborate and Compete without a Communication Network

Mac Schwager
Assistant Professor, Aeronautics and Astronautics

  Abstract:  In the animal world there is no WiFi---agents collaborate and compete by sensing and predicting the actions of teammates, rivals, predators, and prey.  Likewise, in the engineered world, many of the most promising applications for autonomous robots require them to... Read More

CPSRC Seminar Series - Temporal Logic Robustness: Applications to Synthesis and Analysis of Autonomous Systems

Georgios Fainekos
Associate Professor, Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering

Abstract: Many autonomous (or highly automated) systems are also safety critical. Due to their safety critical nature, they must adhere to well defined requirements typically in pairs of assumptions and guarantees. An ongoing research challenge is to develop a specification formalism to rule them... Read More

Advancement: RF Emitter Geolocation using a Single LEO Satellite

Patrick Ellis
PhD Student (Advisor: Farid Dowla)

Abstract:  This thesis addresses the important problem of the high-accuracy geolocation of a ground-level RF emitter based on a weak signal received on a fast-moving single LEO satellite receiver platform. The proposed technology can be expected to have a significant impact on search and... Read More
