A Neural Network Approach to Dynamic Task Assignment of Multirobots

  title={A Neural Network Approach to Dynamic Task Assignment of Multirobots},
  author={Anmin Zhu and Simon X. Yang},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks},
In this paper, a neural network approach to task assignment, based on a self-organizing map (SOM), is proposed for a multirobot system in dynamic environments subject to uncertainties. It is capable of dynamically controlling a group of mobile robots to achieve multiple tasks at different locations, so that the desired number of robots will arrive at every target location from arbitrary initial locations. In the proposed approach, the robot motion planning is integrated with the task assignment… CONTINUE READING
