Situational awareness in rescue operations can be provided by teams of autonomous mobile robots. Human operators are required to teleoperate the current generation of mobile robots for this application; however, teleoperation is increasingly difficult as the number of robots is expanded. As the number of robots is increased, each robot may interfere with one another and eventually decrease mapping performance. Through careful consideration of robot team coordination and exploration strategy, large numbers of mobile robots be allocated to accomplish the mapping task more quickly and accurately.
