Wednesday 7th November 2007 - Alex+Alvaro

Agenda

  1. Presentation / Discussion
    • We will present two different works:
    • Infrared Communication on the Epucks : We have developed a library that takes care of the proximity sensors and uses them as a communication system. Local communication is up to 33B/sec getting the distance and direction of the source as well. A proof of concept (Now you do what they told you) will be shown during the meeting.
    • Sharing knowledge to stay on the path : We have some simulations dealing with odometry errors to find nest and prey in a closed arena. Robots communicate between them to reduce dead-reckoning error. Here we present a first attempt to accomplish the task. Results show the importance of social learning with local communication without the need of a global knowledge.

Friday 23rd November 2007 - Post-Swarmanoid Review Meeting discussion

Thursday 6th December 2007 - Christos

Agenda

  1. Presentation / Discussion
  • The Evolution of Self-Assembly in a group of two homogeneous robots.

I will present my latest work on evolving self-assembly. The same dynamical neural network controls two sbots, providing the decision-making about who grips whom, but also directly controlling the actuators for the gripping action. This type of work differs significantly from work addressing the same issue performed previously in the lab.

Thursday 27th March 2008 - Navneet

Agenda

  1. Presentation / Discussion
  • Automated Design of Two Dimensional Self-assembling Systems

In this presentation, I will discuss the research I have planned for the remainder of my Ph.D. (to get feedback before I submit my formal research proposal and write my candidacy exams this May).

Thursday 17th April 2008 - Carlo

Agenda

  1. Presentation / Discussion
    • Diversity and Communication in the Swarmanoid Project

I will speak about some ideas I had for communication between eye-bots and foot-bots. The aim of the presentation is to get feedback (what's interesting, what's not) and to trigger a discussion to develop the presented ideas.
