multiple mobile robots cooperation heterogeneous
With continuing growth in the use of mobile robots, multiple mobile ro bots get more and more attention because of their superiority in performance ove r an individual robot. This paper makes a comprehensive introduction to cooperat ive technology for multiple mobile robots. Some important subjects are included such as architecture, collaboration and coordination, sensing and localization, reconfiguration, and machine learning. It particularly emphasizes how all techno logies must deal with the heterogeneity of the team. It concludes by examining c hallenges in the field, research prospects, and development trends for heterogen eous multiple mobile robots.
