Article
Full-text available
Maintenance and inspection systems for future fusion power plants (e.g., STEP and DEMO) are expected to require the integration of hundreds of systems from multiple suppliers, with lifetime expectancies of several decades, where requirements evolve over time and obsolescence management is required. There are significant challenges associated with t...

In robotic teleoperation, the knowledge of the state of the remote environment in real time is paramount. Advances in the development of highly accurate 3D cameras able to provide high-quality point clouds appear to be a feasible solution for generating live, up-to-date virtual environments. Unfortunately, the exceptional accuracy and high density...
Article
Remote handling systems are commonly used for decommissioning and maintenance of hazardous environments, especially in the nuclear sector. The necessity for a more realistic and accurate user interaction with the remote environment has led research towards the usage of immersive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality. In order for this...
Chapter
Robots are being used for an increasing number and range of tasks in the fields of nuclear energy, mining, petrochemical processing, and sub-sea. This is resulting in ever more complex robotics installations being deployed, maintained, and extended over long periods of time. Additionally, the unstructured, experimental, or unknown operational condi...

Full-text available
The cost and complexity of healthcare delivery to a globally ageing population is driving developments in the field of assistive living technologies. This paper focuses on the concept and the system infrastructure of the MiiHome project, which assists person-centered integrated care in the home. Working closely with a care organization delivering i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Older people who live alone want to stay at home for as long as possible and avoid unnecessary admission to hospital or into residential care. In most developed and in many developing countries this is placing a growing burden on social care and on healthcare. There is an extensive focus on exploring the ability of digital developments such as remo...

Full-text available
Most elderly people wish to live independently at home, but are at risk of social isolation, inactivity, low mood, falls and increased frailty. To keep them safe at home without unnecessary, expensive hospitalisations we will investigate a new eHealth application using the Microsoft Kinect. This pilot study evaluates user engagement with Kinect whe...
Article
Full-text available
In this chapter, we discuss team coordination in multi-robot systems inspired by the behavior of social insets such as ants and honeybees. Specifically, we study the application instances of ant-inspired robot coverage and bee-inspired robot foraging and pheromone signaling mechanisms and introduce some of our bio-inspired algorithms to deal with t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Coordination is one of the most challenging research issues in distributed multi-robot systems (MRS), aiming to improve performance, energy consumption, robustness and reliability of a robotic system in accomplishing complex tasks. Social insect-inspired coordination techniques achieve these goals by applying simple but effective heuristics from wh...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we propose BeePCo, a multi-robot coverage approach based on honey bee colony behaviour. Specifically, we propose a honey bee inspired pheromone signalling method that allows a team of robots to maximise the total area covered in an environment in a distributed manner. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is experimentally evalu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many real-world scenarios can be modelled as multi-agent systems, where multiple autonomous decision makers interact in a single environment. The complex and dynamic nature of such interactions prevents hand-crafting solutions for all possible scenarios, hence learning is crucial. Studying the dynamics of multi-agent learning is imperative in selec...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Wireless Sensor and Robot Networks (WSRNs) are heterogeneous collections of sensor nodes and robotic vehicles that communicate wirelessly. In the last decade many research studies have attempted to address the challenging trade-offs of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) that arise due to their resource limitations, however, much work is still to be do...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Load balancing techniques for distributed embedded systems tend to be very parameter-rich, and finding adequate parameters for a given scenario is not trivial. Furthermore, the parameter values that are adequate for one scenario are rarely applicable to another that has, for instance, a different application profile or network topology. In this pap...

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consist of multiple, distributed nodes each with limited resources. With their strict resource constraints and application-specific characteristics, WSNs contain many challenging tradeoffs. This paper proposes a bioinspired load balancing approach, based on pheromone signalling mechanisms, to solve the tradeoff betwe...
