  1. Hierarchical State Machine Visualization in Multi-Robot System

    SBC: Rocket Studios            Topic: T4

    Swarms of space vehicles rely on cooperative operations to perform scheduled tasks. This project proposes to improve the design process and operation control of a multi-agent system by using Hierarchical state machines (HSMs). The research will look into theoretical frameworks and methods to visualize HSMs dynamics representing the behavior of a multi-agent system. How an interactive user interfac ...
