Project Description:

The fundamental theory behind multi-agent robotics; proposes dispatching smaller subproblems to individual robots in a group and allowing them to interact with each other to find solutions to complex problems. The system used here at Hope College is a test bed platform to study the coordination and control algorithms for multi-agent robotics. Students are involved in implementing the hardware and software needed to develop the multiple mobile robot system. The current project uses a Yujin™ Kobuki as a mobile robot base. The software implementation is done using Robot Operating System (ROS), an open-source robot control software system. The potential applications of this type of robotics system are extremely diverse, ranging from emergency response and rescue, military reconnaissance to factory floor operations.
