Within the context of multiple mobile, and networked robot systems, this chapter explores the current state of the art. After a brief introduction, we first examine architectures for multirobot cooperation, exploring the alternative approaches that have been developed. Next, we explore communications issues and their impact on multirobot teams in Sect. 53.3, followed by a discussion of networked mobile robots in Sect. 53.4. Following this we discuss swarm robot systems in Sect. 53.5 and modular…

Tightly-coupled navigation assistance in heterogeneous multi-robot teams
TLDR
This paper presents the design and results of autonomous behaviors for tightly-coupled cooperation in heterogeneous robot teams, specifically for the task of navigation assistance, and considers it a significant success to have achieved such a high degree of system effectiveness.
Experiments with a Large Heterogeneous Mobile Robot Team: Exploration, Mapping, Deployment and Detection
TLDR
The design and experimental validation of a large heterogeneous mobile robot team built for the DARPA Software for Distributed Robotics (SDR) program is described and selected results from supervised experiments conducted in a 600 m 2 indoor environment are presented.
Evaluating efficiency of self-reconfiguration in a class of modular robots
TLDR
The kinematic constraints governing metamorphic robot self-reconfiguration are addressed, and lower and upper bounds are established for the minimal number of moves needed to change such systems from any initial to any final specified configuration.

TLDR
The focus of the paper lies on a novel, fast online adaptation method for coupled nonlinear oscillators that allows fast online optimization of locomotion gaits in the face of module failures or new, previously unknown configurations.
A Development of a Modular Robot That Enables Adaptive Reconfiguration
TLDR
Experimental results indicate that the proposed algorithm can induce locomotion, which allows the Slimebot to successfully control the morphology of the modular robot in real time according to the situation without losing the coherence of the entire system.
Automatic scalable size selection for the shape of a distributed robotic collective
TLDR
This work presents a method called S-DASH, which now allows a collective to scalably form a shape without knowing how many robots are in the collective, i.e. scalably.
A modular robot that exploits a spontaneous connectivity control mechanism
TLDR
Simulation results indicate that the proposed algorithm can induce locomotion, which allows the algorithm to successfully control the morphology of the modular robot in real time according to the situation without losing the coherence of the entire system.
Three Dimensional Stochastic Reconfiguration of Modular Robots
TLDR
It is shown that self-reconfiguration can be exploited to accelerate the assembly of a particular shape, as compared with static self-assembly, and factors that govern the rate of assembly and reconfiguration are explored.
Evolutionary Design and Assembly Planning for Stochastic Modular Robots
TLDR
This chapter describes an approach that automatically evolves target structures based on functional requirements and plans the error-free assembly of these structures from a large number of active components.
