Pattern Formation for Asynchronous Robots without Agreement in Chirality [article]

Sruti Gan Chaudhuri, Swapnil Ghike, Shrainik Jain, Krishnendu Mukhopadhyaya
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We show that these robots can form any given asymmetric pattern in finite time.  ...  The robots have local coordinate systems defined by Sense of Direction (SoD), orientation or chirality and scale. Initially the robots are in asymmetric configuration.  ...  If a set of robots is in asymmetric configuration then an asymmetric pattern formation is possible by the robots even without agreement in common coordinate system.  ...

Square Formation by Asynchronous Oblivious Robots [article]

Marcello Mamino, Giovanni Viglietta
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Our results imply that in the context of the Pattern Formation problem for mobile robots, features such as synchronicity, chirality, and rigidity are computationally irrelevant.  ...  In the present paper, we consider robots that operate in the Euclidean plane and are dimensionless, anonymous, oblivious, silent, asynchronous, disoriented, non-chiral, and non-rigid.  ...  As the pattern has to be formed from every possible initial configuration, the Pattern Formation problem is unsolvable if the pattern is not a regular polygon or a point.  ...

Leader Election Problem Versus Pattern Formation Problem [article]

Yoann Dieudonné
2012 arXiv   pre-print
Thus, we deduce that with chirality (resp. without chirality) both problems are equivalent for n \geq 4 (resp. n \geq 5) in CORDA.  ...  Leader election and arbitrary pattern formation are funda- mental tasks for a set of autonomous mobile robots. The former consists in distinguishing a unique robot, called the leader.  ...  In a future work, we would like to investigate the same equivalence (1) for the case n = 3 and (2) in the case without chirality. Missing Proofs.  ...

2018 arXiv   pre-print
They operate in Look-Compute-Move cycles under a fully asynchronous scheduler. The robots do not agree on any common global coordinate system or chirality.  ...  The Arbitrary Pattern Formation problem asks to design a distributed algorithm that allows a set of autonomous mobile robots to form any specific but arbitrary geometric pattern given as input.  ...  resp. n ≥ 5 without chirality) if and only if LEADER ELECTION is solvable.  ...

Coordination without communication: the case of the flocking problem

Vincenzo Gervasi, Giuseppe Prencipe
2004 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
In particular, we analyze the problem of forming a certain pattern and following a designated vehicle, referred to as the leader, while maintaining the pattern: the ocking problem.  ...  In this paper, we study the distributed coordination and control of a set of asynchronous, anonymous, memoryless mobile vehicles that can freely move on a two-dimensional plane but cannot communicate among  ...  Their only task is to observe where the leader and the other followers are, reach an agreement-without communicating-on how and where to form the pattern in the plane, and move to positions such that the  ...

Deaf, Dumb, and Chatting Robots, Enabling Distributed Computation and Fault-Tolerance Among Stigmergic Robot [article]

Yoann Dieudonné, Shlomi Dolev, Franck Petit (LaRIA, LIP, INRIA Rhône-Alpes / LIP Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme), Michael Segal
2009 arXiv   pre-print
The first protocol assumes that the robots agree on a common direction and a common handedness (chirality), while the second protocol assumes chirality only.  ...  Next, we show how the movements of robots can provide implicit acknowledgments in asynchronous systems. We use this result to design asynchronous one-to-one communication with two robots only.  ...  Examples of such tasks are specific problems, so that pattern formation, line formation, gathering, spreading, and circle formation-refer for instance to [24, 12, 6, 21, 3, 22, 7, 4] for this problems  ...

Forming Sequences of Patterns with Luminous Robots

Shantanu Das, Paola Flocchini, Giuseppe Prencipe, Nicola Santoro
2020 IEEE Access  
The characterization is constructive: our universal protocol forms all formable sequences, and it does so asynchronously and without rigidity.  ...  In this paper, we study the formation of sequences of patterns in the LUMI model and provide a complete characterization.  ...  The results for formation of sequences of patterns without lights established in [9] , and those with luminous robots established in this paper have been derived under the assumption that there is chirality  ...

Probabilistic Asynchronous Arbitrary Pattern Formation [article]

Quentin Bramas NPA, LIP6, UPMC, LINCS
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a new probabilistic pattern formation algorithm for oblivious mobile robots that operates inthe ASYNC model.  ...  A noteworthy feature of our algorithm is the ability to form patternswith multiplicity points (except the gathering case due to impossibility results), a new feature in the contextof pattern formation  ...  The following natural open question raises: is a common chirality a necessary requirement for mobile robot general pattern formation ?  ...
