Decentralized Dynamic Task Allocation in Swarm Robotic Systems for Disaster Response

9 Jul 2019  ·  Payam Ghassemi, David DePauw, Souma Chowdhury ·

Multiple robotic systems, working together, can provide important solutions to different real-world applications (e.g., disaster response), among which task allocation problems feature prominently. Very few existing decentralized multi-robotic task allocation (MRTA) methods simultaneously offer the following capabilities: consideration of task deadlines, consideration of robot range and task completion capacity limitations, and allowing asynchronous decision-making under dynamic task spaces. To provision these capabilities, this paper presents a computationally efficient algorithm that involves novel construction and matching of bipartite graphs. Its performance is tested on a multi-UAV flood response application.
