When Robots Hit the Road: New Challenges in Multi-Vehicle Coordination and Control
The practical realization of multi-robot systems includes two important domains that are signaling strong growth: transport (e.g., cooperative vehicle systems, platoons) and logistic operations (e.g., warehouse robots, automated pickup and delivery). The commonality of these two application domains is that they require solutions to core problems such as multi-robot task assignment and path planning. In this talk, I shed some light on new challenges in these areas, and present insights that pertain to resilience, heterogeneity, and privacy.
Amanda Prorok is a University Lecturer in Cyber-Physical Systems at the Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, where she worked with Prof. Vijay Kumar on networked robotic systems. She completed her PhD at EPFL, Switzerland, where she addressed the topic of localization with ultra-wideband sensing for robotic networks. Her dissertation was awarded the Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) award for the best thesis at EPFL in the fields of Computer Sciences, Automatics and Telecommunications. Further awards include Finalist for Best Multi-Robot Systems Paper at ICRA 2017, Best Paper at BICT 2015, and MIT Rising Stars 2015.
