Collaborative decision making in uncertain environments
Baxter, Joseph L. (2009) Collaborative decision making in uncertain environments. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Two major issues in the design of multi-robot systems are those of communication and co-ordination. Communication ithin real world environments cannot always be guaranteed. A multi-robot system must, therefore, be able to continue with its task in the absence of communication between team members. Co-ordination of multiple robots to perform a specific task involves team members being able to make decisions as a single entity and as a member of a team. The co-ordination needs to be robust enough to handle failures within the system and unknown phenomena within the environment.
