The beachcombers’ problem: Walking and searching with mobile robots
 Proc. 21st International Colloquium on Structural Information and Communication Complexity (SIROCCO), 2014, LNCS 8576
"... Abstract. We introduce and study a new problem concerning the exploration of a geometric domain by mobile robots. Consider a line segment [0, I] and a set of n mobile robots r1, r2,..., rn placed at one of its endpoints. Each robot has a searching speed si and a walking speed wi, where si < wi. ..."

Algorithms for Rapidly Dispersing Robot Swarms in Unknown Environments
, 2002
"... We develop and analyze algorithms for dispersing a swarm of primitive robots in an unknown environment, R. The primary objective is to minimize the makespan, that is, the time to fill the entire region. An environment is composed of pixels that form a connected subset of the integer grid. There is a ..."

. There is at most one robot per pixel and robots move horizontally or vertically at unit speed. Robots enter R by means of k ≥ 1 door pixels. Robots are primitive finite automata, only having local communication, local sensors, and a constantsized memory. We first give algorithms for the singledoor case...

Collective retrieval by autonomous robots
 in Proc. of the 2 nd Starting AI Researchers Symp., ser. Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications
, 2004
"... Abstract. The paper presents an experiment of a collective pulling of one object by three Lego R○robots. The robots use two parameters to orient their pulling force: 1. the direction to the nest 2. the local perception of the movement of the prey. Three behaviorbased programs have been experimented ..."

Interval analysis and robotics
"... When dealing with complex mobile robots, we often have to solve a huge set of nonlinear equations. They may be related to some measurements collected by sensors, to some prior knowledge on the environment or to the differential equations describing the evolution of the robot. For a large class of ro ..."

Exploring Unknown Environments
 SIAM Journal on Computing
, 1997
"... We consider exploration problems where a robot has to construct a complete map of an unknown environment. We assume that the environment is modeled by a directed, strongly connected graph. The robot's task is to visit all nodes and edges of the graph using the minimum number R of edge trave ..."

A Visual Attention Network for a Humanoid Robot
 In Proceedings of the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS98
, 1998
"... For a humanoid robot to interact easily with a person, the robot should have humanlike sensory capabilities and attentional mechanisms. Particularly useful is an active vision head controlled by a visual attention system that selects viewpoints in the environment as a function of the robot's t ..."
