Robotic exploration aims at reconstructing (or understanding) an unknown physical process autonomously and as efficiently as possible. In many situations, however, the exploration domain is either vast and a full coverage of it is time consuming for one agent. Another issue is the robustness of the exploration mission, where a single robot represents a single point of failure. This is the reason why this project focuses on multi-agent exploration systems, called swarms. The multi-agent systems coordinate their actions by cooperatively collecting measurements and jointly processing the acquired data, thus they split the computational complexity of the estimation, and risk of whole system failure, among individual agents.
