Coordinated control of multi-robot systems for dynamic task execution

COTSbot will be transformed into RangerBot after winning a $750,000 Google Impact Challenge Australia's people's choice vote.

Funded scholarship available for immediate start:¬†Managing multiple robotic systems simultaneously poses many challenges around coordination and control. This is particularly true in environments where there’s a lack of accurate localisation, sensing uncertainty and limited communications, yet there is an overarching mission objective or series of tasks that need to be completed.

In this project, you will explore  and develop approaches around multi-robot swarming and coordinated formation control for dynamic process monitoring, target tracking and coordinated mapping. There will be a particular focus on underwater and surface robotic systems which inherently have different levels of sensing, mobility and communication uncertainty.
