Centibots: Very large scale distributed robotic teams

2004.

Abstract

We describe the development of Centibots, a framework for very large teams of robots that are able to perceive, explore, plan and collaborate in unknown environments. The Centibots team currently consist of approximately 100 robots. The Centibots team can be deployed in unexplored areas, and can efficiently distribute tasks among themselves; the system also makes use of a mixed initiative mode of interaction in which a user can influence missions as necessary. In contrast to simulation-based systems which abstract away aspects of the environment for the purposes of exploring component technologies, the Centibots design reflects an integrated end-to-end system.

Centibots very large-scale robot teams

This is a joint project with Stanford, University of Washington, and ActiveMedia Robotics, to design, implement and demonstrate a computational framework for the coordination of very large robot teams, consisting of at least 100 small, resource limited robots, on an indoor reconnaissance task.
