A Novel Method for Controlling Multi-agent Robot

Shadi Montazer Rahmati and Farshad Farhadnia

In this study Multi-Agent systems and their control process are introduced. We concentrate on Khepera II robots as a Multi-Agent System and propose a new developed method based on Braitenberg procedure. The most important aspect of this method is utilizing Braitenberg theory for two robots based on impedance control. Our case study is consisted of two Khepera II robots which move on a plane including various obstacles. One of these robots (follower) must track another one (leader) on this plane by sensory connectivity based on Impedance Control (IC) strategy. We control these robots via two heterogeneous networks; the leader robot is connected to a wireless network. The simulation process is performed by Webots® software and the results show the effectiveness and high performance of this new algorithm.
