This paper deals with a task-assignment architecture for cooperative transport by multiple mobile robots in an unknown static environment. The architecture should satisfy three features: deal with a variety of tasks in time and space, deal with a large number of tasks compared with the number of robots, and decide behavior in real time. The authors propose the following approach: We consider the unit of task (task instance) as the job that should be done in a short time by one robot. Based on… CONTINUE READING
