Abstract:

For the AIRTEAM (Aerial Indoor Robot Teams for Exploration And Mapping) Project, Scientific Systems Company, Inc. (SSCI) and iRobot Corporation propose to develop a command-and-control algorithm to allow aerial robotics scouts to cooperatively explore an unknown indoor environment and communicate their findings to each other and their human operators. In Phase I of this project, we will study the feasibility of cooperatively searching indoors with aerial robots. We will develop a basic multirobot coordination and exploration planning algorithm, and we will test this algorithm in simulation. This algorithm will be capable of handling the challenges of indoor operations, such as intermittent wireless communications and obstacles.
