— Recently, auction methods have been investigated as effective, decentralized methods for multi-robot coordination. Experimental research has shown great potential, but has not been complemented yet by theoretical analysis. In this paper we contribute a theoretical analysis of the performance of auction methods for multi-robot routing. We suggest a generic(More)
Teams of robots are more fault tolerant than single robots, and auctions appear to be promising means for coordinating them. In a recent paper at " Robotics: Science and Systems 2005, " we analyzed a coordination system based on sequential single-item auctions. We showed that the coordination system is simple to implement and computation and communication(More)
— One of the main applications of mobile robots is terrain coverage: visiting each location in known terrain. Terrain coverage is crucial for lawn mowing, cleaning, harvesting , search-and-rescue, intrusion detection and mine clearing. Naturally, coverage can be sped up with multiple robots. In this paper, we describe Multi-Robot Forest Coverage, a new(More)
PURPOSE Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers found worldwide and most frequently found in women. An early detection of breast cancer provides the possibility of its cure; therefore, a large number of studies are currently going on to identify methods that can detect breast cancer in its early stages. This study was aimed to find the effects of(More)
