    Abstract

    A holonic multi-robot cell is such a cell specifying a system based on autonomous and cooperative units called holons.This paper presents a method using Bayesian estimation to model uncertainties in a multi-robot cell.When using the sensor fusion with several robots and combining all the information together gives new possibilities of planning the sensing operations, e.g. to minimize the size of locating measurements.If the robots and workobject are accurately modelled (noise model and surface forms) an iterative planner can be used to plan a minimal task sequence for the treatment of the workobject. Further analysis of the remaining uncertainties is based on observing the direction of the eigenvectors and the respect eigenvalues of the error covariance matrix.
