School of Engineering Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering 147 Multi-agent System Control Supervisor: SHI Ling / ECE Student: ZHAO Xiaoqi / ELEC Course: UROP1100, Fall UROP2100, Spring Multi-agent systems (MASs) have received increasing attention from scholars in different disciplines. A platform is set up to test algorithms on multi-agent robot systems, such as formation control and cargo delivery. The platform uses Vicon motion capture system for the positioning of multiple differential wheeled robots. We study the multi-robot collaboration applications on the platform with the configurations similar to an industrial warehouse environment. The robots can now move a cargo from one place to another collaboratively by modeling the formation similar to the kinematics of a differential wheeled robot. The work utilizing centralized control method lays a foundation for future research on decentralized multi-robot collaboration control as well as works on SLAM-based positioning method. RFID-based Indoor Localization for UGV Supervisor: SHI Ling / ECE Student: KUI Ka Yu / SENG LEUNG Ka Chun / SENG LI Kin Fung / COGBM Course: UROP1000, Summer UROP1000, Summer UROP1000, Summer RFID applications are everywhere. From small-scale applications such as door access control, to large-scale applications such as warehouse storage. RFID plays a vital role in identification and localization and is widely adopted. Because of RFID’s cheap, easy to program property, RFID can also be a powerful educational tool for students to learn the basics of coding and algorithm interactively. This report describes our work in the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program in the 2022 Summer. First, explain the rationale of RFID, then how we can leverage the properties of RFID to make a robot and RFID carpet for STEM education and our future works.
