Reactivity and Social Cooperation in a Multi-Robot System

Atef Gharbi, Nadhir Ben Halima, Hamza Gharsellaoui

Abstract

Multi-Robot System (MRS) is an important research area within Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. The balancing between reactivity and social cooperation in autonomous robots is really considered as a challenge to get an effective solution. To do so, we propose to use the concept of five capabilities model which is based on Environment, Self, Planner, Competence and Communication. We illustrate our line of thought with a Benchmark Production System used as a running example to explain our contribution.
