Selected Publications (22 papers)

This document contains a list of my selected publications. The publications are grouped by research topic to show the continuity and progress in my work. A sentence or two is added by way of introduction for each topic. A link is provided to the PDF source for each publication listed.

A. Analysis of Robot Behavior (10 papers)

This is my longest and most active research topic, dating back to my original PhD Thesis. The core of the work is a unique focus on process algebra as a technique for analyzing robot programs and plans.

B. Landmark Recognition: Terrain Spatiograms (3 papers)

Thanks to a grant from the Dept. of Energy, I was able to purchase a team of 15 Pioneer 3-AT robots and an 88-node computational cluster. I am developing a unique approach to the representation of range an image data for landmarks using this unique resource.

D. Cognitive Robotics: Fusion of Real and Synthetic Imagery (3 papers)

Paul Benjamin (Pace University) and Deryl Lonsdale (Brigham Young Univ) and I have developed an approach to cognitive robotics where a 3D physics engine is used as a low level resource for predicting complex behavior by fusion of the real and synthetic visual imagery.
