Modeling Curiosity in a Mobile Robot for Long-Term Autonomous Exploration and Monitoring

26 Sep 2015Yogesh GirdharGregory Dudek

This paper presents a novel approach to modeling curiosity in a mobile robot, which is useful for monitoring and adaptive data collection tasks, especially in the context of long term autonomous missions where pre-programmed missions are likely to have limited utility. We use a realtime topic modeling technique to build a semantic perception model of the environment, using which, we plan a path through the locations in the world with high semantic information content...
