My summer experience at the University of Minnesota ~ Sara Lahr



My research pertains to multi-robot open polyline patrol using Scribbler robots. The Scribblers are combined with a Fluke developed by Georgia Tech. It uses Myro, an existing framework of commands developed by the Institute for Personal Robots in Education (IPRE). I hope to develop an algorithm within the capabilities of the Scribbler robots. The focus is on long-term patrol. The robots patrol a region along a line but remove themselves when they run low on power. The robot low on power returns to the base to be recharged, and a new robot is released to replace it. All the other robots adjust their positions to accommodate the change of robots.
