The Multi-Robot Systems: A Comparative Study on Coordination

To add a paper, Login.

Multi-Robot Systems, because of their diverse and complex applications in various fields such as military, nuclear environment, disaster management etc. are becoming the focus of numerous research projects. The key to successful tasking of MRS is cooperation and coordination. A number of research activities have brought out different approaches to coordination, some of them being task-specific. Based on the taxonomy of coordination between multiple robots already published, we in this paper attempt to carryout a comparative study of the coordination approaches for task suitability, team cooperation and optimality. Five coordination approaches have been considered bringing out their relative merits.
