This paper aims to describe the work done towards designing and implementing systems and optimizations for a set of autonomous robots that intend to collaborate towards accomplishing the specific common goal of transporting recycled objects. At first the paper dives into the aspects of autonomous behavior and describes what exactly constitutes autonomous behavior and then proceeds to explain the specifics of the research work in our lab at Georgia Tech and also mentions the importance and reasons behind performing such research. The paper then goes into an extensive literature review of autonomous collaborative topics and puts emphasis on RFID localization techniques. And finally describes the results and discusses the outcomes of the project. Having the research abruptly paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring of 2020, prevented us from getting to implement the collaborative medium for the robots and putting into a software service box for shipment, however we were able to discover many new findings in the fields of autonomous behavior development and implement a successful and consistent RFID reader-tag duo for our robots to be next used in implementing a collaborative medium for the robots. Special thanks and gratitude towards professors, advisors, UROP representatives and instructors, and graduate students who helped me and our research group in conducting this great research.
