Abstract

The aim of this work is the integration of a robot middleware and a multi-agent system, which paves the way for the straightforward development of multi-robot cooperative applications. Both components are complementary: the robot middleware provides generic interfaces with the robot hardware (base and sensors) and a handful of sound algorithms for single robot localization, planning and navigation; the multi-agent system adds the necessary infrastructure to extend the robot capabilities to a team of robots, based on standard protocols.
