Special Session on Humans, software Agents, Robots, Machines and Sensors (HARMS)

Eric Matson
Professor
Purdue University, USA
Objectives:

The Internet of Things (IOT) is an emergent area of research which can connect numerous ubiquitous devices together in a dense framework. The IOT can be highly valuable in the area of connecting robots with their surrounding environment, enabling cooperative teamwork and emergent behavior between Humans, software Agents, Robots, Machines and Sensors (HARMS). In this special session, we demonstrate a project conducted at Purdue in which 35 people from 22 universities connected a number of IOT enabled devices into a cooperative system to detect, respond and fight fires in a high rise tower.

Topics

The range of topics for this session is broad and includes for example:

  • Internet of Things (IOT)
  • Cooperative Robotics
  • Emergent Systems
  • Fire Fighting robot
  • Big Data
