Talk Title: Wireless Networked Robotics
Abstract: With the advancement of communications and microelectronics, it is now technologically feasible and economically viable to develop mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) with sensing and communication capabilities. Meanwhile, in the robotics community, multiple robots with embedded communications functionality have also been studied, leading to the development of multi-robot systems (MRSs). Although extensive research has been conducted separately in the respective WANETs and MRSs domain, little work has been carried out into the combination of these two technologies. The emerging research field of wireless networked robotics is thus introduced by providing complementary support to each technology. It brings together communications, control, mobility and cooperation to allow physical control of robots, and also enables mission objectives and task division to be performed in a closed loop operation with communications and networking. In this talk, wireless networked robotics that is capable of addressing more complex and time-critical tasks will be introduced. In particular, wireless robotic networks and cloud networked robotics will be presented in details, with applications in both smart city and Internet of things domains.
