Multi-agent System Control
Project Description

Multi-agent System is an emerging field in robotics. In order to solve a wider range of complex problems that a single robot could not tackle, studying and applying the collective behavior in robots is essential. Examples are collaborative object carrying, and search and rescue. In this project, you are going to build a multi-agent system consisting of a few mini ground vehicles and overhead cameras which serve as indoor GPS unit. Then you will investigate the collective behavior of such a system and implement distributed control strategies of each agent so that they can perform a bigger task.
