Title: World Modeling and Coordination for Multi-Robot Systems


Abstract: A team of multiple robots that can communicate among themselves has
the potential to perform effectively through sharing of information. We have been investigating such multi-robot systems in challenging dynamic tasks, such as robot soccer. In this talk, I will overview our work in robot soccer. I will present our contributions in creating effective approaches for maintaining a shared world model and using it as a basis for coordinating multiple robots. I will conclude setting my research goals in perspective and discussing some of the fascinating open questions to be addressed towards truly creating teams of autonomous robots.
