Coalescent multi-robot teaming through ASyMTRe: a formal analysis

This paper describes a general approach for automatically synthesizing task solutions for heterogeneous robot teams. In particular, our approach enables multiple robots to coalesce into teams to solve a task through tightly-coupled sensor sharing. Instead of designing special solution strategies for the team, our ASyMTRe approach enables the robot team to generate solutions autonomously according to the current robot team composition. In this paper, we first formulate the problems that the… CONTINUE READING
