robotMatrix: Transition matrix of a Markov chain that guides the movement...

Description Usage Format Details Author(s) References


Transition matrix of a Markov chain that guides the movement of an autonomous patrolling robot. The chain has been computed according to game-theoretic techniques as the equilibrium solution of a leader-follower game between a potential intruder and a patroller. See the references section.




transRobot is a 10x10 2D matrix, linguisticTransitions is another 10x10 matrix of strings, and robotStates is a vector of state names of length 10.


In the game-theoretic patrolling model proposed in Amigoni et al., the equilibrium solution of the leader-follower game is a Markov chain that can be computed by solving a set of independent linear programming problems. The transition probabilites are described in Fig. 1 of Amigoni et al. linguisticTransitions is a matrix of labels whose names should match the tags of the fuzzynumbers list argument in the call to fuzzyStationaryProb when linguisticTransitions is passed as first argument.
