  • Birn-Jeffery, Aleksandra V.; Hubicki, Christian M.; Blum, Yvonne; Renjewski, Daniel; Hurst, Jonathan W.; Daley, Monica A. (Company of Biologists, 2014-11-01)
    Cursorial ground birds are paragons of bipedal running that span a 500-fold mass range from quail to ostrich. Here we investigate the task-level control priorities of cursorial birds by analysing how they negotiate si ...
  • Yliniemi, Logan; Agogino, Adrian K.; Tumer, Kagan (American Association for Artificial Intelligence, 2014)
    Teams of artificially intelligent planetary rovers have tremendous potential for space exploration, allowing for reduced cost, increased flexibility, and increased reliability. However, having these multiple autonomous d ...
  • Niemeyer, Kyle E.; Sung, Chih-Jen (Elsevier, 2014-11)
    Strategies and recommendations for performing skeletal reductions of multicomponent surrogate fuels are presented, through the generation and validation of skeletal mechanisms for a three-component toluene reference fuel ...
  • Hollinger, Geoffrey A.; Sukhatme, Gaurav S. (SAGE Publications, 2014-08)
    We propose three sampling-based motion planning algorithms for generating informative mobile robot trajectories. The goal is to find a trajectory that maximizes an information quality metric (e.g. variance reduction, inf ...
  • Marvi, Hamidreza; Gong, Chaohui; Gravish, Nick; Astley, Henry; Travers, Matthew; Hatton, Ross L.; Mendelson, Joseph R., III; Choset, Howie; Hu, David L.; Goldman, Daniel I. (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2014-10-10)
    Limbless organisms like snakes can navigate nearly all terrain. In particular, desert-dwelling sidewinder rattlesnakes (C. cerastes) operate effectively on inclined granular media (like sand dunes) that induce failure ...
