Agent-Based Load Balancing for Mobile Robot Applications

Ralf Kluthe, Wolfgang Obelöer, Claus Grewe


There is an increasing demand for mobile autonomous robots, e.g. in the field of service applications. For the use of mobile service robots in real environments, complex and reactive sensing-perception-action systems are necessary. Many of these models were already developed and/or are subject of current research (Mertsching, et al., 1997), (Wasson, et al., 1998). On the other hand, questions on how these models can be integrated into the software architectures for mobile robots as well as the management of system resources necessary in mobile systems are not well studied. Especially the latter requires mechanisms to handle the different timeliness and priorities of the normally parallel tasks even in dynamic environments.
