Yehuda Elmaliach, Noa Agmon,
and Gal A. Kaminka. ** Multi-Robot Area Patrol under Frequency Constraints**.
In * Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA-07)*, 2007.

This paper discusses the problem of generating patrol paths for a team of mobile robots inside a designated target area. Patrolling requires an area to be visited repeatedly by the robot(s) in order to monitor its current state. First, we present frequency optimization criteria used for evaluation of patrol algorithms. We then present a patrol algorithm that guarantees maximal uniform frequency, i.e., each point in the target area is covered at the same optimal frequency. This solution is based on finding a circular path that visits all points in the area, while taking into account terrain directionality and velocity constraints. Robots are positioned uniformly along this path, using a second algorithm. Moreover, the solution is guaranteed to be robust in the sense that uniform frequency of the patrol is achieved as long as at least one robot works properly.
