Abstract

There are many applications where a team of mobile robots may be more suitable than a single vehicle, especially where a distributed system of sensors is advantageous. For example, in search-and-rescue operations, deployment of many robots over an area can allow for more thorough and faster coverage. Yet without coordinating the movement of the agents, any advantage of multirobot deployment may be lost and damaging collisions or interference may occur.
