Reconﬁgurable Agent Architecture for Robots Utilising Cloud Computing
A paper written under the framework of the RAPP project has recently been accepted for the Automation conference 2015.
Proposed by Marcin Szlenk, Cezary Zieliński, Maksym Figat, Tomasz Kornuta (from the Institute of Control and Computation Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology in Poland), “Reconﬁgurable Agent Architecture for Robots Utilising Cloud Computing” presents the general architecture of the control system of a companion robot. As companion robots have to perform diverse and complex tasks, while computational capabilities of the local robot control computer are limited, the control system is split between the robot and the cloud. Moreover, the system is composed of agents, that are arranged into an application on demand of the user. Some of those agents are created on the robot and some in the cloud. As the requirements change the composition of the system changes too.
The paper was presented at the Automation conference 2015, in Warsaw, on March 18-20 and published in the Springer series: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Volume 351. The book is entitled: Progress in Automation, Robotics and Measuring Techniques, Volume 2 Robotics. It was edited by: Roman Szewczyk, Cezary Zieliński and Małgorzata Kaliczyńska.
