Abstract

This paper proposes an Autonomic architecture thatwill enable mobile robots to self-manage and collaborate byusing control loops to monitor their internal state and externalenvironment. The Autonomic Computing MAPE-K controlloop is used to design a Robot Autonomic Element and aMapping Autonomic Element; each can exchange data andcollaborate to find an object located within a room. A review ofthe sensor capabilities of the X80-H mobile robot platform isundertaken with emphasis on how useful each sensor will be tothe proposed research. A literature review of other projectsthat feature robot collaboration is also included.
