Abstract

Autonomous mobile robots become increasingly more popular in many fields to execute tasks instead of human beings. When multiple autonomous mobile robots coexist in an area and move autonomously, how to avoid collision among them is a critical issue. In this paper, a distributed negotiation-based collision avoidance scheme is proposed. With this scheme, mobile robots negotiate with each other when they are about to collide. Based on the negotiation, the robots make the most appropriate decision to avoid collision, and move forward to their own destinations with the least cost. The effectiveness and the efficiency of the proposed scheme are proved by extensive simulations.
