2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present Robofleet, a lightweight open-source system which provides inter-robot communication, remote monitoring, and remote tasking for a fleet of ROS-enabled service-mobile robots that  ...  Long-term deployment of a fleet of mobile robots requires reliable and secure two-way communication channels between individual robots and remote human operators for supervision and tasking.  ...  We then presented Robofleet, an open-source communication and management system for fleets of autonomous mobile robots.  ...
