A Multi-Agent System to Improve Mobile Robot Localization
This paper provides a way to solve the problem of localization in mobile robots using a MAS approach. Typically, the robot localization has been resolved in static environments by adding sensors that help the robot, but this is not useful in dynamic environments where the robot moves through different rooms or areas. The novelty of this dynamic scenario is that each room is composed of external devices that report the position where the robot is. In this paper, we propose a multi-agent system using the SPADE MAS platform to improve the location of mobile robots in dynamic scenarios. To do this, we are going to use some of the advantages offered by the SPADE platform such as presence notification and subscription protocols in order to design a friendship network between sensors/devices and the mobile robots.
