Abstract or Description

For many real-world applications, autonomous robots must execute complex tasks in unknown or partially known unstructured environments. This work presents a novel approach to efficient multi-robot mapping and exploration which exploits a market architecture in order to maximize information gain while minimizing incurred costs. This system is reliable and robust in that it can accommodate dynamic introduction and loss of team members in addition to communication interruptions and failures. Results showing the capabilities of our system on a team of exploring autonomous robots are also given.
