The Rational Behavior Model: a multi-paradigm, tri-level software architecture for the control of autonomous vehicles
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-03)
There is currently a very strong interest among researchers in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics in finding more effective means of linking high level symbolic computations relating to mission planning and ...
Intelligent information retrieval for a multimedia database using captions.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-09)
This report describes an intelligent information retrieval system, MARIE, that employs natural language processing techniques for indexing and retrieving multimedia data. Captions describe photographs from the Naval Air ...
Radar data processing using a distributed computational system
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-06)
This research specifies and validates a new concurrent decomposition scheme, called Confined Space Search Decomposition (CSSD), to exploit parallelism of Radar Data Processing algorithms using a Distributed Computational ...
Reusable software component retrieval via normalized algebraic specifications
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-12)
Efforts in the software engineering community to reuse code are hampered by a lack of tools. Reusability is particularly beneficial in a rapid prototyping environment. Rapid prototyping with automated reusable software ...
A stochastic approach to path planning in the Weighted-Region Problem
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-03)
Planning efficient long-range movement is a fundamental requirement of most military operations. Intelligent mobile autonomous vehicles designed for battlefield support missions must have this capability. We propose an ...
Construction of optimal-path maps for homogeneous-cost-region path-planning problems.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-09)
Fast path-planning algorithms are needed for autonomous vehicles and tactical terrain-analysis tools. We explore a new approach using "optimal-path maps", that give the best path to a goal point from any given start point ...
Planning minimum-energy paths in an off-road environment with anisotropic traversal costs and motion constraints
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989)
A general structure for uncooperative processes distributed over a system network.
(University of Wisconsin, 1973)
