This work presents results of research aiming the nonlinear motion control of
multiple heterogeneous robots based on perception to perform several tasks. All
robots exchange information about their position (localization) in the world
frame, the target position and velocity, behaviors or any necessary information
forming a distributed system. Perception is then used to allow each robot to
choose its best action coupling with its mission in the group. This seminar will
present the results from the research performed in the past five years on
multi-robot systems control, communication, mapping and learning.

The purpose of this talk is to offer topics for possible cooperation with Tiago
during his 14 months post-doc stay at Multi-Robot Systems group, Department of
cybernetics, CTU.

Tiago P. do Nascimento received the B.S. in Mechatronics Engineering at the
College of Technology and Science - FTC (Brazil) in 2007, the M.S. degrees in
Electrical Engineering from Federal University of Bahia (Brazil) in 2009, and
the Ph.D. degree from Oporto University (Portugal) in Electrical and Computer
Engineering, in 2012. In 2013, he joined the Department Computer Systems,
Federal University of Paraiba, João Pessoa (Brazil), as an Assistant Professor.
He is currently working as a Post-doc researcher at the Multi-Robot Systems
Group from CVUT. His main research interests are in mobile ground and aerial
robotics, multi-robot systems, process control, nonlinear vehicle dynamics and
intelligent control. He is also a member of the IEEE, IEEE RAS, and IEEE CSS
since 2004.
