Information System for Autonomous Mobile Robot Interaction - Position Paper

Nadina Battagliotti, Daniela López De Luise, Jin Sung Park


This paper presents what the authors consider to be a new distributed memory architecture for self-organizing distributed systems. The work in progress presented here focuses on the representation of a distributed memory for multi-robot systems. It states the main characteristics of a shared environment and provides suitable interfaces to allow autonomous mobile robots to query, publish and exchange relevant information without requiring a central data storage. The memory is based on a combination of fuzzy systems, distributed Self-Organizing Maps (SOM), a new specific design information handshake between robots and a new model for approach for world-map global administration.
