Abstract:Mobile agents provide the functionality of all other distributed computing paradigms in a unified environment and enables a natural design philosophy for distributed computing systems. These properties can provide multiple-robot system developers with a wide range of options for initial development and future extension of their systems, and an intuitive and robust design environment. In this paper, we present two examples to show how, by taking advantage of these properties, the adaptability and fault-tolerance of a multiple-robot architecture (the ALLIANCE architecture) can be extended in multiple networked robots.
