Paper Abstract

Research on the coordination of multiple mobile robots has to address three main problems: (i) how to appropriately divide the functionality of the system into multiple roots, (ii) how to manage the dynamic configuration of the system, and (iii) how to realize cooperation behavior. This paper will concentrate on the third aspect. More specifically, the aim of our research is to develop a team of coordinating mobile robots via effective communication for real work applications. We will describe the methodology to achieve cooperative behavior, the experimental mobile robots developed, and potential application areas. The developed system is demonstrated by two examples such as flocking and shared experience learning.
