    After 30 s, the search mission is commenced. The updated probability map is transmitted to the service vehicles every 5 s by the host computer. The final configuration of planar position and the trajectories of all service vehicles for different time steps, 40 s, 90 s, 180 s are shown in Figure 6-3.1-1-c. The distribution density function based on the most updated probability maps are also shown in the figures. The color intensity is proportional to the value of distribution density function at each point. It can be seen from this figure that the configuration of service vehicles in the environment is optimal according to time-varying density…

    uncertainty. When an “outcome is the result of adding the outcomes of many separate performances, all in certain respects uniform”; in other words, when the frequency-ratio is known, then the experiment is named divisible, while a non-divisible or non-seriable experiment is one which “can be neither itself broken down into a number of uniform additive parts nor treated as part of a divisible experiment” (p. 8). In a non-divisible experiment the frequency-ratio standpoint has no actual sense. One…
