I would like to introduce myself and my research. My presentation is consists of following 2 parts, emergence of fish school avoidance behaviors through simulations that is a theme of my master degree, and my projects that are going on. I have three projects called ARLISS, SLIM, and deploying ad hoc networks with multiple robots. - The ARLISS program is designed to provide an educational experience to students in the design, flight and data analysis of space experiment. The ARLISS has a mission is called Come Back Competition whose purpose is to compete with autonomous navigation of a payload to reach a specified point on the ground (the goal is given by latitude and longitude data). - The SLIM project (Smart Lander for Investigating Moon) that is a project of JAXA, Japan Aerospace Xploration Agency. The purpose of this project is to investigate the pinpoint landing technology necessary for the moon planetary exploration in the future, and to prove it with a small explorer in the surface of the moon. We call a robot for exploration ROVER, and role of rover is to reach the target hole that is 300m away from the landing point with fully autonomous control. To tackle this issue, we propose a new navigation method called a measuring worm algorithm and evaluate performance through experiments. - The last project is deploying an ad hoc network with multiple autonomous robots (it has no simple name yet). A purpose of this project is to make an ad hoc network by using multiple autonomous robots for a disaster area. And now, I focus on a method of covering area. This project has just started, and I always welcome your comments, questions, proposals, or something interesting!
