In order to be proactive, robots should be capable of generating and selecting their own goals, and pursuing activities towards their achievement. Goal reasoning has focused on the former set of cognitive abilities, and automated planning on the latter. Despite the existence of robots that possess both capabilities, we lack ...

Robotic ecologies are systems made out of several robotic devices, including mobile robots, wireless sensors and effectors embedded in everyday environments, where they cooperate to achieve complex tasks. This paper demonstrates how endowing robotic ecologies with information processing algorithms such as perception, learning, planning, and novelty detection can make these ...

Robotic ecologies are networks of heterogeneous robotic devices pervasively embedded in everyday environments, where they cooperate to perform complex tasks. While their potential makes them increasingly popular, one fundamental problem is how to make them both autonomous and adaptive, so as to reduce the amount of preparation, pre-programming and human ...

We outline a proposal for a research program leading to a new paradigm, architectural framework, and prototypical implementation, for the cognitively inspired anchoring of an agent's learning, knowledge formation, and higher reasoning abilities in real-world interactions: Learning through interaction in real-time in a real environment triggers the incremental accumulation and ...

We propose a constraint-based approach to address a class of problems encountered in combined task and motion planning (CTAMP), which we call kinematically constrained problems. CTAMP is a hybrid planning process in which task planning and geometric reasoning are interleaved. During this process, symbolic action sequences generated by a task ...

A growing body of literature shows that endowing a mobile robot with semantic knowledge and with the ability to reason from this knowledge can greatly increase its capabilities. In this paper, we present a novel use of semantic knowledge, to encode information about how things should be, i.e. norms, and ...

Ubiquitous robotics is an emerging paradigm in which smart environments are augmented with robots to provide physical and information added-value services to the citizen. We discuss the challenges and opportunities in extending this paradigm from a single environment (home, factory floor) to the scale of a community of homes, a ...

In this article we address the problem of realizing a service-providing reasoning infrastructure for pro-active human assistance in intelligent environments. We propose SAM, an architecture which leverages temporal knowledge represented as relations in Allen's interval algebra and constraint-based temporal planning techniques. SAM provides two key capabilities for contextualized service provision: ...

In this article, we present the ongoing efforts within the newly formed IEEE-RAS Working Group named Ontologies for Robotics and Automation. We focus in particular on one of the four subgroups that compose this working group, called the Upper Ontology/Methodology (UpOM) subgroup. As the name indicates, the aim of this ...

The fields of ambient intelligence, distributed robotics and wireless sensor networks are converging toward a common vision, in which ubiquitous sensing and acting devices cooperate to provide useful services in the home. These devices can range from sophisticated mobile robots to simple sensor nodes and even simpler tagged everyday objects. ...

We address the issue of human-robot cohabitation in smart environments. In particular, the presence of humans in a robot's work space has a profound influence on how the latter should plan its actions. We propose the use of human-aware planning, an approach in which the robot exploits the capabilities of ...

Estimating people’s head pose is an important problem, for which many solutions have been proposed. Most existing solutions are based on the use of a single camera and assume that the head is confined in a relatively small region of space. If we need to estimate unintrusively the head pose ...

This paper presents a localization method using fuzzy logic to represent the different facets of uncertainty present in sensor data. Our method follows the typical predict-update cycle of recursive state estimators to estimate the robot's location. The method is implemented on a fuzzy position grid, and several simplifications are introduced ...

In this paper, we address the problem of fusing information about object positions in multirobot systems. Our approach is novel in two main respects. First, it addresses the multirobot object localization problem using fuzzy logic. It uses fuzzy sets to represent uncertain position information and fuzzy intersection to fuse this ...

The growing presence of household robots in inhabited environments arises the need for new robot task planning techniques. These techniques should take into consideration not only the actions that the robot can perform or unexpected external events, but also the actions performed by a human sharing the same environment, in ...

Stigmergy is a mechanism that allows the coordination of actions within the same agent or across different agents by means of traces left in the environment. We propose a stigmergetic approach to robot navigation in which a robot sets values in a hexagonal grid of RFID tags buried under the ...
