Active strategies for coordination of solitary robots

This thesis considers the problem of search of an unknown environment by multiple solitary robots: self-interested robots without prior knowledge about each other, and with restricted perception and communication capacity. When solitary robots accidentally interact with each other, they can leverage each other’s information to work more effectively. In this thesis, we consider three problems…

A Coordinated Search Strategy for Solitary Robots

The problem of coordination without a priori information about the environment is important in robotics. Applications vary from formation control to search and rescue.This paper considers the problem of search by a group of solitary robots: self-interested robots without a priori knowledge about each other, and with restricted communication capacity. When the capacity of robots…
