Abstract

In this study, the Coordinated Hybrid Agent (CHA) framework for the control of Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) is applied for a heterogeneous multi-agent system. The system consists of a mobile robot, an overhead crane, and a robot manipulator. The final goal for this project is to implement coordination tasks for the system. In this framework, the control of the MAS is regarded as a decentralized control and coordination of agents. A coordination rule base is developed for the intelligent coordination control layer. Experiments show that the framework is able to model the heterogeneous multi-agent systems.
