Abstract
Autonomous mobile robots can substantially increase the effectiveness of planning by acting as coordinated team. Our focus is on the planning of the activities of a team of autonomous, mobile robots in such environments. The communication bandwidth of robot systems is constrained. Being able to model complex activities of a team in an intuitive way requires combining modeling and planning techniques. The main contribution of the paper is the optimization of the planning process while using every agent as a planning resource and aiming at low communication needs. A general conclusion is that the planning process for teams of up to 75 agents can be improved compared to state of the art approaches by up to 23%.
