Abstract

This paper presents task coordination scheme for multiple mobile robots in indoor environment. Multi-robot systems are gaining a lot of popularity for different applications in indoor and outdoor environments and for executing various tasks in different scenarios. The advantage with multi-robot systems is efficiency by which a task can be completed as compared to single robot system thus allowing more autonomy to the task at hand. In this paper, we present novel techniques for multi-robot system operating in indoor office like environment using semantic mapping. A mapping and navigation algorithm is discussed that uses topological and metric maps. We demonstrate through simulations and experiments, the coordination strategy and discuss the results.
