Title:  Cooperative Suverillance using Multiple Ground Vehicles

This talk considers the problem of concurrent task- and path planning for a number of  surveillance Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) such that a given polyhedral area is completely covered by the UGVs' sensors.

Both the minimum time and the connectivity constrained formulations will be discussed.

The presented material constitutes one of three parts of my thesis "On Cooperative Surveillance, Online Trajectory Planning and Observer Based Control" whose public defence will be held on April 1, 2009, at 10.00 AM in Room E2, Lindstedtsvägen 3, KTH.  The opponent will be Professor Randal Beard,  Brigham Young University, USA.
