    This paper describes an autonomous vehicle testbed that aims at providing the first- and last- mile transportation services. The vehicle mainly operates in a crowded urban environment whose features can be extracted a ...
  • Doniec, Marek Wojciech; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-11)
    This paper describes AquaOptical II, a bidirectional, high data-rate, long-range, underwater optical communication system. The system uses the software radio principle. Each AquaOptical II modem can be programmed to transmit ...
  • Correll, Nikolaus; Arechiga, Nikos; Bolger, Adrienne M.; Bollini, Mario A.; Charrow, Ben; Clayton, Adam; Dominguez, Felipe A.; Donahue, Kenneth M.; Dyar, Samuel S.; Johnson, Luke B.; Liu, Huan; Patrikalakis, Alexander; Robertson, Timothy; Smith, Jeremy; Soltero, Daniel Eduardo; Tanner, Melissa; White, Lauren L.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    This paper describes the architecture and implementation of a distributed autonomous gardening system. The garden is a mesh network of robots and plants. The gardening robots are mobile manipulators with an eye-in-hand ...
  • Suresh Kumar, Swarun; Shi, Lixin; Ahmed, Nabeel; Gil, Stephanie; Katabi, Dina; Rus, Daniela L. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-09)
    This paper introduces CarSpeak, a communication system for autonomous driving. CarSpeak enables a car to query and access sensory information captured by other cars in a manner similar to how it accesses information from ...
  • Volkov, Mikhail; Anwar, Afian Khairil; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-10)
    We present an application that uses a predictive queueing model to efficiently allocate taxis. The system uses observed taxi and flight data at each of the four terminals of Singapore's Changi Airport to estimate the ...
  • Aslam, Javed; Lim, Sejoon; Pan, Xinghao; Rus, Daniela L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-11)
    Traffic congestion, volumes, origins, destinations, routes, and other road-network performance metrics are typically collected through survey data or via static sensors such as traffic cameras and loop detectors. This ...
  • Soltero, Daniel Eduardo; Smith, Stephen L.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12)
    Persistent robot tasks such as monitoring and cleaning are concerned with controlling mobile robots to act in a changing environment in a way that guarantees that the uncertainty in the system (due to change and to the ...
  • Vasilescu, Iuliu; Detweiler, Carrick; Rus, Daniela L. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-08)
    Capturing color in water is challenging due to the heavy non-uniform attenuation of light in water across the visible spectrum, which results in dramatic hue shifts toward blue. Yet observing color in water is important ...
  • Doniec, Marek Wojciech; Vasilescu, Iuliu; Detweiler, Carrick; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    e present a control algorithm for autonomous underwater robots with modular thruster configuration. The algorithm can handle arbitrary thruster configurations. It maintains the robot's desired attitude while solving for ...
  • Karges, J.; Wood, R. J.; Gilpin, Kyle W.; Rus, Daniela L.; Torres-Jara, E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-12)
    We have presented a simple but effective method to design flexible actuators. This process relies on understanding the behavior of a simple unit cell element built out of SMA sheet. The unit cell effectively uses the ...
  • Stein, David B.; Schoen, T. Ryan; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12)
