Performance Evaluation of Multiple Robots in a Search and Retrieval Task

Paul Rybski, Amy Larson, Michael Lindahl, and Maria Gini

In this paper we study the performance of multiple robots at a search and retrieval task. The robots have all the same capabilities and perform the same task without any explicit communication. The sensing capabilities of the robots are quite limited, yet the robots succeed at performing the task. We show how the performance is affected by the number of robots working in the same area, the distribution of the targets the robots are searching for, and the complexity of the environment.
