Abstract

The Georgia Institute of Technology won the Office Cleanup event at the 1994 AAAI Robot Competition and Exhibition with a multirobot cooperating team. This article describes the design and implementation of these reactive trash-collecting robots, including details of multiagent cooperation, color vision for the detection of perceptual object classes, temporal sequencing of behaviors for task completion, and a language for specifying motor schema-based robot behaviors.
