Abstract

Multi-agent systems can be a viable choice for realizing self-organizing systems consisting of reconfigurable software components. We present a real-world system consisting of heterogeneous air and ground robots whose behavior and coordination is orchestrated by a MAS in a decentralized manner. The system is able to cooperatively transport largescale measuring equipment and is used for environmental observation, such as in-situ measuring of temperature.

Description

As part of the 10th IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems, which took place at the University of Augsburg during 12-16 September 2016, we demonstrated live some basic features of our current state.

Multi-agent systems can be a viable choice for realizing self-organizing systems consisting of reconfigurable software components. We present a real-world system consisting of heterogeneous air and ground robots whose behavior and coordination is orchestrated by a MAS in a decentralized
manner.

The system is also able to cooperatively transport largescale measuring equipment and is used for environmental observation, such as in-situ measuring of temperature. This was demonstrated during the geographic measurement campaign ScaleX 2016 (http://www.imk-ifu.kit.edu/scalex.php).
