Notes

Abstract: This paper explores multi-agent NXT Robotics systems using a Bluetooth communication channel. The project consisted of using Bluetooth technology to coordinate movements between two agents. The benefits of creating a swarm of robots with individual capabilities include a more controllable system as opposed to a single and more complicated machine. The lead robot was programmed to follow a specified path using a light sensor, then send, via Bluetooth, a message indicating follower instructions. The sensitivity of the light sensor and the Lego Mindstorms NXT-G software limitations created inconsistencies in the follower program. Hypotheses regarding the lack of success in the following capabilities of the robots involve limitations of the NXT-G software. Our conclusion is that inability to adjust Bluetooth settings in the NXT-G software is the source of miscommunication between the robots. Specifically, the ability to adjust the rate of messages sent/received may improve overall communication.
