Multi-robot coordination is fundamental and significant in the robotics research community. With the increasing number of robots in one task, team efficiency improvement and energy consumption reduction research becomes more important in robots coordination. In this paper, we propose a novel multirobot coordination algorithm called Distributed Bidirectional(More)
This paper presents a solution to the problem of pattern formation on a grid map, for a homogeneous multi-robot system. In this paper we propose a natural swarm inspired algorithm based on the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) model and Virtual Pheromone mechanism. Basically, a virtual pheromone trail based method is proposed as the message passing(More)
Aggregation is a basic collective behavior in biology, and is a prerequisite for many applications of swarm robotics. This paper proposes a new distributed algorithm for aggregation of swarm robotics under the constraints of no central control, no information about positions, and only local interaction among robots. Our control strategy contains two states,(More)
We describe a distributed algorithm for coordinating a swarm of homogeneous robots to explore an unknown area using only local interaction. The basic movement rule is based on the gas dispersion model. To avoid duplication exploring, we introduce a new strategy called SMARK to leave signpost in explored area. Consequently this system have three outstanding(More)
Location awareness is important in most of the wireless sensor networks. Many localization schemes have been proposed for both static and mobile wireless sensor networks. However, most of them aim at localizing the sensor nodes with global coordinate by using additional ranging hardware or anchors knowing its global position. These schemes may suffer from(More)
