Abstract:

This report describes the software modules required to demonstrate an overwatching fires OWF behavior on a team of laboratory robotic platforms. The modules are divided into three types-servers, an operator control unit OCU, and the OWF application. Servers are independent software programs that communicate with sensors and actuators on-board the robot. The OCU is an independent process that allows operators to start, modify, and stop the OWF behavior. The OWF application consists of several modules that control sensing, communication, movement, and shooting for each of the robots in the team.
