Circle formation for oblivious anonymous mobile robots with no common sense of orientation
The distributed coordination and control of a set of autonomous mobile robots is a problem widely studied in a variety of fields, such as engineering, artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics. Generally, in these areas the problem is studied mostly from an empirical point of view. In contrast, we aim to understand the fundamental limitations on what a set of autonomous mobile robots can achieve. In this paper we describe the current investigations on what autonomous mobile robots can and cannot do with respect to some coordination problems.
