Particle robots are novel biologically-inspired robotic systems where locomotion can be achieved collectively and robustly, but not independently. While its control is currently limited to a hand-crafted policy for basic locomotion tasks, such a multi-robot system could be potentially controlled via Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) for different t...

Soft bodies made from flexible and deformable materials are popular in many robotics applications, but their proprioceptive sensing has been a long-standing challenge. In other words, there has hardly been a method to measure and model the high-dimensional 3D shapes of soft bodies with internal sensors. We propose a framework to measure the high-re...

The soft robots are welcomed in many robotic applications because of their high flexibility, which also poses a long-standing challenge on their proprioception, or measuring the real-time 3D shapes of the soft robots from internal sensors. The challenge exists in both the sensor design and robot modeling. In this paper, we propose a framework to me...

Platooning of heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) is a key component of smart and connected highways and is expected to bring remarkable fuel savings and emission reduction. In this paper, we study the coordination of HDV platooning on a highway section. We model the arrival of HDVs as a Poisson process. Multiple HDVs are merged into one platoon if their he...
