As part of the scholarship program of the Higher Committee for the Development of Education in Iraq, Haidari thamer Jassim, a graduate student in the Department of Engineering and Systems Engineering at the University of Technology, received a master's degree from the University of New South Wales in Australia for his research entitled: (Cooperative collision-free navigation of multi-wheeled robots in a dispersed, unknowable environment)
The research included the development of the MPC algorithm for collaborative navigation of a group of robots in the unrecognized environment. It included facilitating and redesigning some of the algorithm steps to make them more efficient in practical applications. It also included the integration of this algorithm with a number of nonlinear Kalman filters for optimal guessing of the location and navigation angle of each robot. This method ensures that each robot is navigated in an unknowable and non-disruptive environment without obstacles or other robots.
