This paper describes a reactive, distributed layered architecture for cooperation of multiple resource-bounded robots, which is utilized in mobile sensor network coverage. In the upper layer, a dynamic task allocation scheme self-organizes the robot coalitions to track efficiently in separate regions. It uses the concepts of ant behavior to self-regulate… CONTINUE READING
