Participants: Julia Braman, Sawyer Fuller, JM McNew, Richard Murray, Kevin Oishi, Ketan Savla (Thu-Fri), David Thorsley, Steve Waydo (Mon), Nok Wongpiromsarn


  1. Implement a cooperative control algorithm using graph grammars and involving at least 4 vehicles
  2. Learn about graph grammars, cooperative control, MDS, etc
  3. Leave with the ability to implement algorithms


  • MVWT demos and training - get everyone up to speed on using the testbed
  • Fix up infrastructure and documentation, aimed at improving usability for everyone
  • Informal talks on research of general interest

Useful links:

  • MVWT - main wiki page (not very complete yet). We will fill this in during the week
  • Old MVWT page - we need to copy everything from here to the wiki



11a   Organizational meeting - set out goals and rough schedule
1p   Lunch break
2p   Lab demo and account setup
4p   Recap for the day; plans for Tue


  • 4 physical robots executing cooperative task specified as EGG
  • Plug adn play interface: EGG, CCL, MDS, ...
  • Learn about MVWT and Alice
  • Leave with simulation code (for EGG + MVWT)
  • Dynamic, flowing (loops, circles)
  • Leave EGG behind
  • Tell other people how testbed works
  • How to use SOS to proe EGG protocol
  • Vision system working
  • Subversion repository for code (MVWT, player/stage, EGG), tutorial
  • (partially) switch to DGC cluster
  • doc -> wiki
  • Fault detection ideas + (maybe) prototype implementation
  • Rethink/redo MVWT network
  • (UW people) Set up meetings with Mani Chandy, Jason Hickey, Joel Burdick
