I will talk about current work on the evolution of communication for heterogeneous robots, trying to link it with older work and also with what I have in mind as future goal, but also on a new self-assembly method we are working on with Anders, where the NN takes care of everything, without use of camera. I will also elaborate on the doors the latter effort might open once successful.

Contents

Purpose

  1. Community. Keep everyone updated as to what other work is going on in the lab
  2. Research. Cross germination. Get feedback. Get help on problems. Get ideas.
  3. Admin. Lab administration.


Format

  1. Presentation & Discussion (30 - 50 mins)
    • Work you have been doing
    • Reading you have been doing in the context of your work
    • Other reading on something you are passionate about
  2. Robotics Group Administration (0 - 15 mins)


Try and make your session as involving as possible for everyone:

  • Send round material to be read beforehand.
  • Ask people before the meeting what aspects of your work / reading they would like to know about or discuss.
  • Think about implications of what you are presenting for the research direction of the lab as a whole - methodologies, technologies etc.


Timing & Attendance

The weekly meetings ALWAYS take place on

Wednesdays at 14.30

Unless:

  • A given Wednesday is a public holiday, or
  • Something very important (like a Ph.D. defense) is overlapping.

If either should happen the meeting is postponed to the next day.

Please indicate on this wiki page if you are not going to be able to attend a meeting (no later than the Friday before).

If you forget to note your absence in advance you will be severely punished and will be forced to buy a nice, big cake for the following meeting.

Wednesday 19th April 2006 - Elio

Agenda

  1. Presentation / Discussion
    • I presents the results of a series of simulation concerning the evolution of controllers for heterogeneous robots required to coordinate their actions in order to approach a target. This work, carried out by myself, Christos Ampatzis, Federico Vicentini and Marco Dorigo, has been recently submitted to SAB06.
  1. Robotics Group Admin

Reading material If you are interested in doing some reading about this subject, you can find in my room printed copies of the paper submitted to the conference.
