GRASP Special Seminar: Volkan Isler, University of Minnesota, “Robotic Data Gathering”

May 15, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


 In this talk, I will present an overview of our efforts on developing robotic systems for data collection in environmental and agricultural applications. I will introduce novel data gathering problems and show how they can be formulated as variants of TSP with Neighborhoods. Next, I will present approximation algorithms we have developed for these problems and conclude with results from field experiments.
