Filippo Sanfilippo, Øyvind Stavdahl and Pål Liljebäck. SnakeSIM: a Snake Robot Simulation Framework for Perception-Driven Obstacle-Aided Locomotion. Accepted for publication to the Proceeding of the 2nd International Symposium on Swarm Behavior and Bio-Inspired Robotics (SWARM), Kyoto, Japan, 2017.

Snake robot locomotion in cluttered environments where the snake robot utilises a sensory-perceptual system to perceive the surrounding operational environment for means of propulsion can be defined as perception-driven obstacle- aided locomotion (POAL). The development of POAL is challenging. Moreover, testing new control methods for POAL in a real setup environment is very difficult because potential collisions may damage both the robot and the surrounding environment. In this perspective, a realistic simulator framework may enable researchers to develop control algorithms for POAL more safely, rapidly and efficiently. This paper introduces SnakeSIM, a virtual rapid-prototyping framework that allows researchers for the design and simulation of control algorithms for POAL. To demonstrate the potential of SnakeSIM, a possible control approach for POAL is also considered as a case study.

I thank all my co-authors and I congratulate all of them for their contribution.
