Multi-robot behaviors with location transparency

Carlos Agüero, Manuela Veloso


Service robots are quickly integrating into our society to help people, but how could robots help other robots? The main contribution of this work is a software module that allows a robot to transparently include behaviors that are performed by other robots into its own set of behaviors. The proposed solution addresses issues related to communication and opacity of behavior distribution among team members. This location transparency allows the execution of a behavior without knowing where is located. To apply our approach, a multi-robot distributed receptionist application was developed using robots that were not originally designed to cooperate among themselves.
