Multi Agent Robotics in Dynamic Enviroments

Multi Agent Robotics in Dynamic EnviromentsBy: Yaniv Altshuler

In this work we examine the use of a decentralized group of extremely simple robotic agents for cooperatively accomplishing missions of global properties. We show that using only local interactions, such simple robots can cope with the lack of a central supervisor, communication resources and large memory resources. Using redundancy, the systems also achieve fault tolerance (required as the robots' simplicity might also imply low hardware reliability, resulting in agents malfunctions).
