Multi robot Exploration for Environmental Monitoring

Multi-robot Exploration for Environmental Monitoring: The Resource Constrained Perspective provides readers with the necessary robotics and mathematical tools required to realize the correct architecture. The architecture discussed in the book is not confined to environment monitoring, but can also be extended to search-and-rescue, border patrolling, crowd management and related applications. Several law enforcement agencies have already started to deploy UAVs, but instead of using teleoperated UAVs this book proposes methods to fully automate surveillance missions. Similarly, several government agencies like the US-EPA can benefit from this book by automating the process. Several challenges when deploying such models in real missions are addressed and solved, thus laying stepping stones towards realizing the architecture proposed. This book will be a great resource for graduate students in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Robotics, Machine Learning and Mechatronics. Analyzes the constant conflict between machine learning models and robot resources Presents a novel range estimation framework tested on real robots (custom built and commercially available)

Distributed robotics is an interdisciplinary and rapidly growing area, combining research in computer science, communication and control systems, and electrical and mechanical engineering. Distributed robotic systems can autonomously solve complex problems while operating in highly unstructured real-world environments. They are expected to play a major role in addressing future societal needs, for example, by improving environmental impact assessment, food supply, transportation, manufacturing, security, and emergency and rescue services. The goal of the International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems (DARS)

Searching for olfactory targets with mobile robots has received much attention in the recent years due to its applications in chemical leak detection, environmental monitoring, pollution monitoring, inspection of landfills, and search and rescue operations. This thesis aims to address the problem of searching for olfactory targets with a group of mobile robots. A group of robots with on-board sensors can actually form a mobile sensor network, so they can cover larger area in a shorter time and they show

Many tasks in the modern world involve collecting information, such as infrastructure inspection, security and surveillance, environmental monitoring, and search and rescue. All of these tasks involve searching an environment to detect, localize, and track objects of interest, such as damage to roadways, suspicious packages, plant species, or victims of a natural disaster. In any of these tasks the number of objects of interest is often not known at the onset of exploration. Teams of robots can automate these often

"This thesis explores the challenges involved in building autonomous exploration and monitoring systems, and makes contributions on four fronts: describing the semantic context of the collected data, summarizing this information, deciding where to collect this data, and making optimal online irrevocable decisions for physical sample collection. Making high level decisions based on the environmental context of a robot's location requires that we first describe what is being observed in a semantic space with higher level of abstraction than the low
