Abstract

The research and development of various autonomous robots have been conducted for seeking methods of making multiple robots cooperate efficiently. In this paper we report an experiment to control multiple robots by using a set of mobile agents. Our previous study succeeded in making autonomous robots roughly gather by using ACC (Ant Colony Clustering), while suppressing energy consumption. The robots that are gathered are in arbitrary shapes. It is easier for human laborer to collect then if some of them form lines. We have studied to make the robots, which are roughly gathered by using ACC, form short lines. In this paper, we propose the line forming technique of the autonomous robots to achieve the above-mentioned purpose. We have constructed a simulator to show the movements of many robots based on the data collected from a few real robots. The results of the simulation demonstrate the effectiveness of the technique.
