Notes

Abstract: This paper highlights the exploration of 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 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. One conclusion is that inability to adjust the Bluetooth settings is the source of miscommunication between the robots. Specifically, the ability to adjust the rate of messages sent/received may improve overall communication.
