Students/Faculty Member Publish Computer Science Work

Assistant Professor of Computer Science Janyl Jumadinova, Hanzhong Zheng ’17, and Almog Boanos ’17 have published their work “OWLS: Observational Wireless Life-enhancing System” in the Proceedings of the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems as a short paper and in the Proceedings of the Autonomous Robots and Multirobot Systems Workshop as a long paper. In this work, they developed a system where multiple wearable sensors, software agents, robots, and health analysis technology have been integrated into a single personal therapy solution, and demonstrated its effectiveness and efficiency. Dr. Jumadinova and Hanzhong Zheng published an article titled “Using Boolean Networks for Consensus in Multi-Robot Environmental Monitoring Tasks” in the Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Electro/Information Technology. In this paper, they presented a novel approach to multi-robot environmental monitoring based on dynamical systems, in which a robotic team overcomes data misinterpretation and aggregation difficulties through an effort of collaboration between all members of the team.
