Abstract

This paper explains design and development of low cost autonomous robots which co-operate each other through local communications, in order to search a goal of a given maze. Two robots are designed to negotiate a path to the centre of a maze in the optimal amount of time. An algorithm is developed which allows the two of them to work in parallel and reduce redundant mapping by communicating and sharing information with each other and aiding each other to reach the centre. The design integrates a microcontroller, sensors, motors and communication modules. This paper presents the design and interface of the different modules as well as preliminary data related to the performance of the autonomous robot. The main focus on a real-time search, where the robot searches an unknown maze until it finds a goal. It also includes localization and mapping of the maze in real time.
