Assistant Professor Julie Shah and graduate student Matthew Gombolay have been honored as the recipients of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Best Intelligent Systems Paper Award for 2012. Shah and Gombolay were recognized for their paper "A Uniprocessor Scheduling Policy for Non-Preemptive Task Sets with Precedence and Temporal Constraints," which they presented at the AIAA Infotech@Aerospace Conference last year.
The paper presents a real-time, processor scheduling algorithm for non-preemptive task sets with precedence, wait constraints, and deadline constraints. The work describes one piece of the algorithm Shah’s Interactive Robotics Group has developed to perform fast scheduling of multi-robot teams - the full system was recently presented at the 2013 Robotics Science and Systems Conference.
Shah, an assistant professor in the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, leads the Interactive Robotics Group at CSAIL. Her research interests include autonomous systems, human-robot collaboration, AI planning and scheduling, and interactive robotics for aerospace, medical and manufacturing.
