Run-Time Reconfiguration Software Platform for Autonomous Robots

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Autonomous Robots normally perform tasks in unstructured environments, with little or no continuous human guidance. This calls for context-aware, self-adaptive software systems. The authors' paper aims at providing a flexible adaptive middleware platform to seamlessly integrate multiple adaptation logics during the run-time. To support such approach, a reconfigurable middleware system - ACCADA - was designed. During the run-time, context knowledge is used to select the most appropriate adaptation modules so as to compose an adaptive system best-matching the current exogenous and endogenous conditions.
