Multi-Robot Search and Rescue : A Potential Field Based Approach

  title={Multi-Robot Search and Rescue : A Potential Field Based Approach},
  author={Joseph L. Baxter and Edmund K. Burke and Jonathan M. Garibaldi and Mark Norman},
This paper describes two implementations of a potential field sharing multirobot system which we term as pessimistic and optimistic. Unlike other multirobot systems in which coordination is designed explicitly, it is an emergent property of our system. The robots perform no reasoning and are purely reactive in nature. We extend our previous work in simulated search and rescue where there was only one target to the search for multiple targets. As in our previous work the sharing systems with six… CONTINUE READING
