Multipotent Systems: A New Paradigm for Multi-Robot Applications


Multipotent Systems: A New Paradigm for Multi-Robot Applications

Multi-robot and multi-agent applications typically are designed for either homogeneous or heterogeneous systems. While technologies developed for homogeneous systems provide robustness against failures, they lack versatility concerning applicability. For heterogeneous systems, this observations is true vice versa: While they can be applied to versatile use cases, failures are hard to compensate. We propose the class of multipotent systems to merge the benefits of heterogeneous and homogeneous robot systems. For achieving this, we equip an ensemble consisting of mobile robots with self-organization abilities enabling it to autonomously adapt itself on coalition level as well as on capability level.
