Mobile robot communication, grid services, robot control, distributed robotics.


In this research, a new communication and information sharing mechanism for a very large group of mobile robots has been developed and tested successfully. This system also enables robots to share their computational resources. Grid Services technology is used in design and the Globus Toolkit3.0 has been utilized in implementation. A mobile robot can ask assistance from some other mobile robots in order to coordinate a task involving multiple mobile robots. Such a system is crucial especially when very large number (hundreds or thousands) of robots need to communicate and share resources. Several mobile robots with very rich sensory capabilities have been used to test the developed system.
