Visible to the public An Aircraft Electric Power System Domain-Specific Language for Reactive Control Protocols

Abstract:

Domain-specific languages are languages adapted to a particular application or set of tasks. While general purpose languages (e.g., C or Java) may offer broader programming features, domain-specific languages (e.g., HTML or Verilog) provide more expressiveness and ease of use within a given domain [3]. Examples of languages used in the context of cyber-physical systems can be found in [1] and [2].

Visible to the public Robots With Vision That Find Objects

ABSTRACT

Consider the following problem: A robot is instructed in language to find an object (from a generic class) in a cluttered room. For example, the robot may be asked to find an "apple" or a "cup". We take a bio- inspired, active approach to this problem that combines vision, action, and higher-level cognition .
