Long-term autonomous robot systems will play an essential role in many real-world applications in the future. Robots will operate in a broad range of domains including space, marine, air, field, road, and service. They will assist us in our daily routines and perform other dangerous, dirty and dull tasks. However, enabling autonomous robots to successfully [...]
