Topic: Software Engineering for Operating Multiple Robots

Speaker: Yuichi Yaguchi, Associate Professor, The University of Aizu


With the demands for self-driving cars and unmanned aerial vehicles, new-normal under the COVID-19 situation, mobile robot has great expectations that performs so many tasks by remote and autonomous. Currently, these devices are programmed with control logic for a single, almost independent robot, and are made to maneuver according to a set of rules. However, when multiple robots of different types work simultaneously, there are many more problems to be solved, such as cooperative behavior and collision avoidance. This presentation will introduce some examples of systems for using multiple UAVs and software engineering technologies for effectively controlling, maneuvering, and constructing multiple robots, such as the NEDO DRESS PROJECT, projects related to the Innovation Coast Initiative, and the University of Aizu’s industry-university collaborative robotics R&D project.


He received his B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Aizu in 2006, and his Ph. D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Graduate School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Aizu in 2011. In 2011, he became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Systems, Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Aizu, and in October 2013, he became an Associate Professor in the same department. In 2015, he became an Associate Professor at ARC Robot, Center of Advanced Information Science and Technology (CAIST), University of Aizu. In 2019, he became an Associate Professor at ARC Space, University of Aizu.
