With the advancement in communication technology, the robotic researchers started to think in the direction of developing the co-operative mobile robot. These robots can co-operate with each other in the group or sometimes outside the group in ad-hoc manner for successful completion of the mission. Ad-hoc routing protocol provides mechanisms for ad-hoc communication in infrastructureless and dynamic environment, where these robot teams are suppose to be deployed. For the reliability of ad-hoc communications, it is very much essential to have an idea of the relative performance of different available routing protocols, which can be applied for the purpose. In this paper, the authors discuss about the cooperative ad-hoc mobile robot communication and different types of ad-hoc network protocols applicable for the said situation. Performance of two ad-hoc routing protocols i.e., DSDV and AODV have been discussed and adjudged for their efficiency in Reference Point Group Mobility (RPGM) scenario having multiple groups of communicating nodes.
