Application: Systems and methods for timed plan verification and strategy synthesis for multi-robot coordination (Patent ID: US20240051141A1)

The patent filed by Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson describes a node for temporal plan verification and timed game automata (TIGA) controller strategy synthesis to coordinate multiple agents. The node includes processing circuitry that identifies violations of safety rules in temporal plans, generates a TIGA controller strategy to control agents while meeting safety rules, and transmits this strategy to a dispatch device for agent instruction translation. The method involves determining model violations, generating controller strategies, and ensuring agent coordination based on predefined safety rules.

Additionally, the patent outlines the use of TIGA models, timing deviations, and modifications to temporal plans to prevent deadlocks among agents. The method includes mapping temporal tasks to TIGA models, creating temporal overlaps, and controlling states to satisfy safety rules. The processing circuitry can receive time deviation estimates to adjust the TIGA controller strategy. Furthermore, a dispatcher device is described to receive and transform the TIGA controller strategy into instructions for agents, ensuring compliance with safety rules and effective coordination. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive system for verifying temporal plans, synthesizing controller strategies, and coordinating agents in a timed game automata environment.
