Algorithms for Establishment and Reconfiguration of Optical Information Network for Multi-Agent Robotic System


  • Laser Technology Centre, Ltd., St. Petersburg, Russian Federation


Background/Objectives: Multi-agent Robotic Systems (MRS) with supervisory control can solve important practical tasks. For efficient MRS operation it is required to provide high speed (over 1 Gb/s) wireless communication between its agents. Methods: The implementation of the required high-speed data interchange in a multi-agent system is only possible when using wireless optical links. Low divergence of laser radiation is an important advantage of these lines, but it greatly complicates the task of establishing and reconfiguring optical information systems. Findings: The paper discusses possible algorithms for solving problems of the establishment and reconfiguration of an optical information system with respect to MRS, which is being developed within the framework of an applied research funded by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. Improvements/Novelty: By means of dynamic reconfiguration of the network the proposed algorithms for optical information network construction enable to provide reliable data transfer between the MRS agents at their mutual movement and link loss variation.
