2014 IEEE/RSJ IROS
The objective of this workshop is to assess the degree to which multi-robot systems is a distinct research sub-area within the robotics community rather than a topic that cuts-across each of the other sub-areas and topics. We wish to explore the degree to which core elements of multi-robot systems research (e.g., distributed algorithms, decentralized planning, etc.) span existing areas and to anticipate the degree to which these elements will in the future. This workshop aims at promoting a discussion to identify and define the overarching ideas that can tie together different research direction in multi-robot systems, and lead to the definition of common practices and standards.
