There has been an increasing interest in researching, developing and deploying multi-robot systems.  ...  In this paper, we surveyed the research topics related to multi-robot CPP for the purpose of mapping and model reconstructions.  ...  Similarly, the work in [64] proposed a two layered exploration approach including coarse exploration layer performed by UGV, and fine mapping layer performed by UAVs in GPS denied environment.  ...
