Abstract:The aim of this article is proposal and implementation of the multi-robot system for mapping of the unknown environment. For the localization of each robot, simple odometry was used. Navigation of the robots is based on algorithm similar to bug algorithms. Communication between robots is based on polling. The system was implemented on the platform iRobot Create. Practical experiments have proven that multi-robot system for mapping of the unknown environment is faster and more reliable than single robot system.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
