Abstract

In this paper, we combine k-coverage with the Cooperative Multi- robot Observation of Multiple Moving Targets problem, de ning the new problem of online multi-object k -coverage. We demonstrate the bene ts of mobility in tackling this and propose a decentralised multi-camera coordination that improves this further. We show that coordination exploiting shared visual features is more e ective than coordination based on Euclidean distance. When coordinating k-coverage in a distributed way, our results suggest that the design of coordination mechanisms should shi towards decisions being made by potential responders with up-to-date knowledge of their own state, rather than a coordinating camera.
