The military use of autonomous vehicles or robots will increase as national security planners seek to maintain strategic deterrence and preserve U.S. interest in spite of reduced resources. Cooperative group behavior among large numbers of robots will be required to complete various missions. Communication schemes for command, control, and coordination of multiple robots is one of the required capabilities. This thesis evaluates the Simplified Lisp- like Expression Evaluation Paradigm (SLEEP) for implementation as a development tool and a communications scheme: SLEEP enables the dynamic group formation of robots that are best qualified for a task. The SLEEP concept is tested and evaluated using a testbed built from Nomadic SCOUT mobile robots and a socket interface. Results from simulation and physical experiments validate the effectiveness of SLEEP for multiple robot coordination.
