协作多机器人系统是近年来机器人研究的热点,具有良好的应用前景. 针对开展相关研究的迫切需要,总结了协作多机器人系统研究的国内外发展现状,并分别对无意识协作的仿生多机器人系统和有意识协作的异构多机器人系统研究进行论述.重点从系统构建和优化控制的宏观角度出发,对有意识协作异构多机器人系统的体系结构、环境感知以及优化控制3个方面的研究进展分别展开论述;对典型的多机器人验证任务和软硬件实验平台进行了总结;最后对协作多机器人系统的研究方向进行了展望.
Cooperative multirobot systems have been a particularly popular topic within robotics because of their potential applications. To meet the demand of promoting relevant study, the current research and development situation of cooperative multirobot systems were systematically reviewed and summarized. Research concerning the unconscious bionic swarmcooperation multirobot and the heterogeneous intentionalcooperation multirobot was discussed. In particular, to build and optimize heterogeneous intentionalcooperation multirobot systems, the recent advances in system structure, environment perception, and control optimization were surveyed and analyzed. Moreover, the benchmark tasks and universal software/hardware platforms for a multirobot were summarized. Finally, future developments in cooperative multirobot system research were discussed.
