    Speech Title--Issues in Multi-Robot Applications

    Speech Abstract--Nowadays, multi-robot operations are acknowledged as a common practice in industry for various tasks. State of the Art of Multi-Robot Systems are described in the first statement. Multi-robot research issues are then discussed in terms of the operational strategies: centralized, distributed, and mixed operational schemes. Next, we show that one of the main issues in multi-robot operation is the problem of collision avoidance. We also show the importance of the collision avoidance problem in multi-robot operations. For multi-robot collision avoidance, a special tool, called the collision map, is introduced and applied to the problem of multi-robot collision avoidance.
    More deep analysis and investigation are presented for an application of the collision map. Various types of collision maps are then introduced with several possible applications. Also, robot path modification is viewed in terms of collision avoidance using the concept of collision map. Various applications using the collision map are presented for a problem of 100 multi-robot operations, a stealth intruder intercept scheme, and efficient multiple cleaning robots operation. Especially, the load balancing in multiple cleaning robots are realized using the collision map. Finally, future applications using multi-robot systems are briefly discussed.

    Useful Information 当地信息

    Visa 签证

    Your passport must be valid for at least six months after the expiry date of your visa and you’ll need at least one entire blank page in your passport for the visa. You may be required to show proof of hotel reservations and onward travel from China, as well as a bank statement showing you have $100 in your account for every day you plan to spend in China.

    A standard 30-day single-entry visa can be issued from most Chinese embassies abroad in three to five working days. Express visas cost twice the usual fee. In some countries (eg the UK and the US) the visa service has been outsourced from the Chinese embassy to a Chinese Visa Application Service Centre, which levies an extra administration fee. In the case of the UK, a single-entry visa costs £30, but the standard administration charge levied by the centre is a further £36.

    A standard 30-day visa is activated on the date you enter China, and must be used within three months of the date of issue. 60-day and 90-day tourist visas are reasonably easy to obtain in your home country but difficult elsewhere. To stay longer, you can extend your visa in China at least once, sometimes twice. Visa applications require a completed application form (available at the embassy or downloaded from its website) and at least one photo (normally 51mm x 51mm). You normally pay for your visa when you collect it. A visa mailed to you will take up to three weeks. In the US and Canada, mailed visa applications have to go via a visa agent, at extra cost. In the US, many people use the China Visa Service Center, which offers prompt service. The procedure takes around 10 to 14 days.

    Hong Kong is a good place to pick up a China visa. However, at the time of writing only Hong Kong residents were able to obtain them direct from the Visa Office of the People’s Republic of China. Single-entry visas processed here cost HK$200, double-entry visas HK$300, while six-month/one-year multiple-entry visas are HK$500. But China Travel Service (CTS) and many travel agencies in Hong Kong can get you a visa in two to three working days. Expect to pay HK$650 for a single-entry visa and HK$750 for a double-entry. Both American and UK passport holders must pay considerably more for their visas. Be aware that political events can suddenly make visas more difficult to procure or renew.

    Get Around in Guangzhou 公共交通

    Air Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, being located on the border of the northern Renhe Town, Baiyun District, and the eastern Xinhua Town, Huadu District, is about 28 kilometers (17.4 miles) from the airport to downtown area of the city. It is one of the three largest air hubs in China. Passport holders of 53 countries and regions are granted a visa-free stay of up to 144 hours when taking an international transfer via Guangzhou Baiyun Airport. Read details about 144-Hour Visa-Free Transit.

    Metro Guangzhou Metro owns 13 lines in operation with a length of 308 km (192 mi) and 167 stations. Its mileage is the 3rd in China and the 10th in the world. In 2016, the reliability of the metro's operation was No. 1 and the on-schedule rate was No. 3 in the world.  Guangzhou Metro Maps

    Train Guangzhou has three railway stations handling passenger transport. The Railway Station at Huanshi Road is the largest and the most important one, operating trains between the city and Beijing, Wuhan, Nanjing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Xi'an, Lhasa and many other China cities. The East Railway Station (Tianhe Railway Station) mainly provides through trains from to Hong Kong and frequent bullet trains between to Shenzhen. The North Railway Station in Huadu District is a small station mainly operates bullet trains between the city and Wuhan. 

    City Bus City buses are easily accessible in the city, including daytime lines, night lines, airport shuttle buses, tourist buses and BRT lines. Apart from that, three sightseeing bus lines are in service which take tourists to the major attractions in town.

    Taxi A taxi charges CNY10 for the first 2.5 kilometers (1.55 miles) and CNY2.6 for succeeding each kilometer (0.6 mile). When a taxi runs farther than 35 kilometers (21.7 miles), extra 50% will be automatically charged for empty return.

    Water Bus The water transport in this city is mainly made up of Suigang Port, Zhoutouzui Port, Zengcheng Xintang Port, Panyu Lianhuashan Port and Nansha Port. There are six water buses running along the Pearl River, supplying residents and tourists with a more convenient transport service with four piers along the line - Zhongda Ferry Pier, Tianzi Ferry Pier, Xidi Ferry Pier and Fangcun Ferry Pier. The whole journey takes 40 minutes and costs CNY2.

    Things to see & do in Guangzhou 广州景点景点

    Night Cruise on Pearl River
    As the third longest river in China, the Pearl River with a length of more than 2,000 kilometers (about 1,243 miles). Cruising on Pearl River undoubtedly is one of the best things to do in Guangzhou at night. Cruising along the river let you get a whole new take on the city. You can enjoy the Haizhu Square, the famous Canton Tower, as well as various towering skyscrapers.

    Ascend Canton Tower
    Canton Tower has become a landmark of the city, so it is also one of must-see places in Guangzhou. As the highest tower in China, Canton Tower has a height of 600 meters (1,968 feet). Ascending Canton Tower, you cannot only enjoy a wonderful bird’s view of the whole city but also have a chance to experience some extreme challenges. 

    Cantonese Morning Tea & Dim Sum
    The Cantonese Morning Tea is more like a gorgeous breakfast which includes the tea and dim sums in more variation than you know. Surely you should try the classical ones like Shrimp Dumpling, Steamed Shaomai, and Steamed Vermicelli Roll.

    Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall
    Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is one of the must-see places in Guangzhou because of its historical significance. It was built in commemoration of the Chinese great revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen (1866 -1925). A witness to so many historical events, the Memorial Hall now is an important venue for large gatherings and performances in Guangzhou.

    Hiking in White Cloud Mountain
    As the most famous mountain of the city, White Cloud Mountain offers wonderful hiking routes. Spending a weekend there is one of the fun things to do in Guangzhou for the local people. It consists of more than 30 peaks and Moxing Ridge is the highest one among them. Standing on the peak, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the whole city.

    Have Fun in Chimelong Tourist Resort
    Chimelong Tourist Resort is composed of a series theme parks including Chimelong Paradise, Safari Park, Water Park, International Circus, and Birds Park. Meanwhile, watching a fantastic circus performance is one of the best things to do in Guangzhou at night. As for the Water Park, it is a cool place to have a good time with friends or families in summer.
