Exploration of unknown environments with multirobot systems subject to communication constraints is a task involved in several applications, like search and rescue and monitoring. The approaches proposed so far to address this problem are usually based on the use of a single communication modality, for instance, either multi-hop (MH) or rendezvous (RV), during the whole mission. However, it has been conjectured that online switching between communication modalities could be beneficial. In this… CONTINUE READING
