Active Peer Pressure in Human-Robot Interaction
This work investigates how conformity in human-robot groups can be manipulated by the robots’ ability to actively apply coordinated peer pressure via voicing their agreement or disagreement with the human’s selections in ...
K-12 Curriculum and Robotics to Address the Workforce Shortage and Advancement of Computing
Development and novel research contributions for computing and robotics technologies requires a workforce with mastery of computing. However, this goal is currently strained due to issues of education, access, and discernment ...
Securing a UAV Using Features from an EEG Signal
This thesis focuses on an approach which entails the extraction of Beta component of the EEG (Electroencephalogram) signal of a user and uses his/her EEG beta data to generate a random AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) ...
Socially-Aware Navigation Planner Using Models of Human-Human Interaction
A real-time socially-aware navigation planner helps a mobile robot to navigate alongside humans in a socially acceptable manner. This navigation planner is a modification of nav_core package of Robot Operating System (ROS), ...
A Distributed Control Architecture for Collaborative Multi-Robot Task Allocation
This thesis addresses the problem of task allocation for multi-robot systems that perform tasks with complex, hierarchical representations which contain different types of ordering constraints and multiple paths of execution. ...
A Realistic Simulation for Swarm UAVs and Performance Metrics for Operator User Interfaces
Robots have been utilized to support disaster mitigation missions through exploration of areas that are either unreachable or hazardous for human rescuers . The great potential for robotics in disaster mitigation has ...
