This paper investigates the capabilities of tabu search for solving the global path planning problem in grid maps. Accordingly, a tabu search system model is designed and a tabu search planner algorithm for solving the path planning problem is proposed. A comprehensive simulation study is conducted using the proposed model and algorithm, in terms of(More)
Path planning is a fundamental optimization problem that is crucial for the navigation of a mobile robot. Among the vast array of optimization approaches, we focus in this paper on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Genetic Algorithms (GA) for solving the global path planning problem in a static environment, considering their effectiveness in solving such a(More)
Assigning tasks to a set of robots is a fundamental problem in robotics. It consists in finding the best task assignment to the available robots. In this paper, we present two distributed market-based algorithms to solve the assignment problem where n robots compete for n tasks with the assumption that each robot can be assigned to only one task. The first(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of multi-robot systems in emergency response applications, where a team of robots/drones has to visit affected locations to provide rescue services. In the literature, the most common approach is to assign target locations individually to robots using centralized or distributed techniques. The problem is that the(More)
