Abstract

The aim of this research is to develop a decentralized communication system of multiple robots which have capability to communicate and coordinate with each other, by which all robots work individually while keeping connectivity among them. Decentralized communication between robots is the main part of this project. This type of communication shows great potential in many aspects. A decentralized system is the combination of both intelligent and decision making inspired from nature. To meet this object two identical robots are developed which successfully communicate with each other to complete an assigned task. A single task is given to both robots; to find specific object/target location. Once the target is found by any of the robot that robot will then communicate with second robot to guide the path of object/target location. Guiding path to the second robot is the challenging task as discussed in this paper. The Robots use Bluetooth devices to calculate and extract the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication)values for communication purpose.Both robots work together as a team. By working in communicated way their time is reduced to achieve the task and create synergy. Any task could be easily attained in team work than by the work of the single individual robot.
