### Trapezoidal decomposition of a graph

When we plan the motion of a robot we may apply the trapezoidal decomposition of free space. While applying the trapezoidal decomposition we add nodes to both the centers of trapezoids and vertical ...

### Classify an algorithm to maximize number of tips used by liquid handlers concurrently

I'm looking for suggestions on algorithms, data structures or at least problems (so that I look for solutions in that domain) to consider. I realize that exact solution probably doesn't exist. But the ...

### How to transform robot motor steps into X/Y coordinates?

I have a robot with two motors A and B connected to wheels 21.6mm in diameter. The motors move in steps, and there are twenty steps for each complete revolution of the wheel. To make the robot move ...

### Gaussian distribution with condition?

What does this expression mean? Normal distribution with condition I am reading a research paper and found the following expression (Eq.28 in the paper below). It means a Gaussian distribution, but ...

### How to decide whether a real life problem can be dealt with by computers?

I get that complexity theory will be helpful to decide whether the resources at hand can deal with a mathematical function, but when presented with a non-purely mathematical problem - like building a ...

### What is the best algorithm for detecting the texture of a person's clothes in real-time for a mobile robot?

I am working on the human following robot. the robot extracts a feature of clothes's texture and distinguishes between the people that they stand up in front of the robot. So, the robot needs that it ...

### Configuration space for multi robot system

I have a problem that I think can be casted in the following way. Suppose I have a simple closed polygon $\mathcal{P}$ and $n$ squares (bounding boxes) $\mathcal{B}_1, \ldots, \mathcal{B}_n$, you can ...
