Abstract [en]

In this paper the problem of multi-robot collaborative topological map-building is addressed. In this framework, a team of robots is supposed to move in an indoor office-like environment. Each robot, after building a local map by using infrared range-finders, achieves a topological representation of the environment by extracting the most significant features via the Hough transform and comparing them with a set of predefined environmental patterns. The local view of each robot which is significantly constrained by its limited sensing capabilities is then strengthened by a collaborative aggregation schema based on the Transferable Belief Model (TBM). In this way, a better representation of the environment is achieved by each robot with a minimal exchange of information. A preliminary experimental validation carried out by exploiting data collected from a self-made team of robots is proposed.
