A Multiagent Architecture for Mobile Robot Navigation Using Hierarchical Fuzzy and Sliding Mode Controllers

Dorra Ayedi, Maïssa Boujelben, Chokri Rekik
2018 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
The use of multiagent system is convenient for such a problem. Hence, we have designed a structure composed of four agents dedicated to perception, navigation, static, and dynamic obstacle avoidance.  ...  Those agents interact through a coordination system.  ...  Among those properties, we mention decentralized control, which permits the continuity of the system even when some parts fail, coordinability, predictability, and adaptability [2, 3] .  ...
