Experimental set-up of a navigation based control system for robotic swarms

Semester Thesis, HS12 (10196)

The aim of this project is to set up a navigation control system for a collection of di erential robots that allows tests of di erent control algorithms for complex multi-agent systems. Such an experimental platform does not represent the reality perfectly but is useful as a proof of concept for di erent methods. In order to do so, some basic simpli cations on the dynamics of real systems have to be made. In the example of the submarines one assumption could be that all submarines move on the same constant height. The main strengths of this platform are supposed to be reliability and versatility. It has to be reliable such that any unexpected incident like a connection loss will not have an impact on the entire system and it has to be versatile such that it retrieves many information about the agents and allows a very simple control of them. The user should also have the possibility to easily apply his own control algorithm on the robots using this platform. A transparent way to do this is the implementation of an appropriate GUI.
