PhD Challenges. A PhD means carrying out research no one has ever done in order to answer questions no one has ever answered. And no one ever said it would be easy! Some of the challenges you'll face will be unique to your project, but others will be more predictable. These articles offer advice for spotting and overcoming them.
Real-time obstacle avoidance is essential for the safe operation of mobile robots in a dynamically changing environment. This paper investigates how an industrial mobile robot can respond to unexpected static obstacles while following a path planned by a global path planner. The obstacle avoidance problem is formulated using decision theory to determine an optimal response based on inaccurate.

In robotics, obstacle avoidance is the task of satisfying some control objective subject to non-intersection or non-collision position constraints. In unmanned air vehicles, it is a hot topic. What is critical about obstacle avoidance concept in this area is the growing need of usage of unmanned aerial vehicles in urban areas for especially military applications where it can be very useful in.

Collision Avoidance Up to the Handling Limits for Autonomous Vehicles. Joe Funke. October, 2015. As autonomous vehicles enter public roads, they should be capable of using all of the vehicle's performance capability, if necessary, to avoid collisions. This dissertation focuses on facilitating collision avoidance for autonomous vehicles by enabling safe vehicle operation up to the handling.

PhD thesis. My PhD was completed at the University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh, UK), where my supervisors were Mark Bastin (Medical Physics) and Amos Storkey (Informatics). I also spent a very humid three months at Brown University (Providence, RI, USA) in the summer of 2006, where I worked in David Laidlaw’s group. The entire thesis is available as a large pdf file (14,364 KiB), or chapter-by.
