Scope and Motivation


The Technical Committee (TC) on Multi-Robot Systems (MRS) aims at identifying and constantly tracking the common characteristics, problems, and achievements of MRS research in its several and diverse domains.

The TC aims at becoming a principal gathering place and communication catalyst among all researchers and practitioners working on MRS and related fields.

Researchers interested in MRS represent an inherently diversified community, since several competences are needed in this field, ranging from control systems to mechanical design, coordination, cooperation, estimation, perception and interaction. Therefore, this TC aims to serve as a gathering point for the wide community interested in MRS, to push cross-fertilization between the communities (even beyond the IEEE R&A Society) and identify common characteristics of multi-robot problems in different domains, facilitating the definition of standard methods and practices for development and validation of algorithms in multi-robot applications.
