Abstract:

We present a formal problem statement for the application of multi-robot systems to intelligence gathering in disaster-relief scenarios. The design and implementation of a system capable of performing experiments in a relevant field environment is addressed along with a suite of autonomy-enabled behaviors that support operation in a communications-limited setting. Finally, we present extensive experimental results evaluating this system.
