Cooperative Foraging Behavior of Multi Robot System with Simple Interaction

  • Published : 2001.10.01


Researches of multi-robot system are active in these days. The most remarkable characteristic of multirobot system is that the robots work cooperatively and achieve the task which a single robot cannot do. It is essential to investigate number effect of multi-robot system. In this paper, we chose foraging task and investigated their behavior. At first, we investigated the foraging behavior in case that interaction range is Infinite. Secondly, we investigated the behavior in case that interaction range is finite. In both case, we find out there is an optimum interaction duration.
