This research topic belongs to the research area Robotics.
The research in this topic aims at defining efficient navigation strategies for mobile robots. In building maps of environments, an exploration strategy determines the next observation position a mobile robot should reach in the partially known environment. We employ formal approaches, like multi-objective optimization and multi-criteria decision making to define exploration strategies. An efficient strategy for a mobile robot that is patrolling an environment to prevent intrusions has been developed considering a patrolling situation as a strategic game played by the mobile robot and the intruder.
