This paper surveys recent results in pursuitevasion and autonomous search relevant to applications in mobile robotics. We provide a taxonomy of search problems that highlights the differences resulting from varying assumptions on the searchers, targets, and the environment. We then list a number of fundamental results in the areas of pursuit-evasion and probabilistic search, and we discuss field implementations on mobile robotic systems. In addition, we highlight current open problems in the area and explore avenues for future work.

Franke, Richard H. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1972-08-28); NPS-53FE72081ATwo-person zero-sum games of pursuit/evasion and target attack/defense are considered. The geometric solution of these games, and some variations of them, is given. Several more complex games are discussed.
Taylor, James G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1970-06-19); NPS-55TW70061AThe kinematic aspect of surveillance-evasion is studied with a deterministic differential game model. The model considers a Pursuer with limitations on both speed and maneuverability (turning radius) and an Evader with ...
Klaus, Christian; Chung, Timothy H. (IEEE, 2011-12);This paper investigates the effect on the performance of a mobile sensor search caused by the search environment. We model the search environment as a simple connected undirected graph. By adding non-existing edges to ...
