Cooperative search by combining simulated and real robots in a swarm under the view of multibody system dynamics

Qirong Tang & Peter Eberhard
This paper presents a new approach for cooperative search of a robot swarm. After modeling the robot, the mechanical Particle Swarm Optimization method is conducted based on physical robot properties. Benefiting from the effective localization and navigation by sensor data fusion, a mixed robot swarm which contains both simulated and real robots is then successfully used for searching a target cooperatively. With the promising results from experiments based on different scenarios, the feasibility, the interaction...
