Distributed algorithms for capturing a target using autonomous mobile robots

Yuto Kodama, Akihiro Fujiwara


Distributed autonomous mobile robots is a set of robots that move freely in a two dimensional plane. For the distributed autonomous mobile robots, a number of algorithms for shape formation problems have been proposed.

In this paper, we propose three kinds of distributed algorithms for capturing an escaping target using the autonomous mobile robots. In addition, we implement the proposed algorithms in the simulation environment, and verify performance of the proposed algorithms.
