abstract

  • In this paper, a robotics sampling methodology known as Adaptive Sampling (AS) is reviewed. Although the method is not yet widespread in robotics, it plays an important role in remote sensing applications over rapidly changing environments. This article gives an introduction to AS and summarizes the main AS techniques and algorithms applied to robotics. Finally, a number of projects currently under development using AS to solve relevant monitoring or sampling issues, are highlighted.
