This package performs random walk coverage with an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). It is part of the swarm behaviors library.
This package depends on the following message definitions: * cpswarm_msgs
The following library packages of the swarm behaviors library are required: * swarm_behaviors_position
The following packages of the swarm functions library are required:
* target_monitor (only if
The following packages of the sensing and actuation library are required: * area_provider * obstacle_detection

The identifier (ID) of the CPS used for name spacing in simulation.

ugv_random_walk performs coverage using the random walk algorithm. The random walk is a mathematical movement model, where an agent moves straight for a specific distance. Then, it changes its direction randomly into a direction that is clear of obstacles and moves straight again. If it arrives at the environment boundary, it reflects to continue its walk. When the parameter
single_target is set to
true, the UGV succeeds once a target has been found and returns the target ID and position.
ugv_coverage/goal(cpswarm_msgs/CoverageGoal) A goal that starts the random direction coverage behavior.
ugv_coverage/result(cpswarm_msgs/CoverageResult) ID and position of the target that has been found.
target_found(cpswarm_msgs/TargetPositionEvent) Position and ID of a target detected by the target monitor. Only subscribed when
single_targetis set to
obstacle_detection/get_clear_sector(cpswarm_msgs/GetSector) Get the circular sector that is clear of obstacles.
area/closest_bound(cpswarm_msgs/ClosestBound) Get the coordinates of the closest boundary in order to reflect from it.
5.0) The frequency in Hz at which to run the control loops.
1) The size of the message queue used for publishing and subscribing to topics.
true) Whether the algorithm will succeed / terminate once a target has been found.
3.0) The distance in meter that a UGV travels in one step.
0) The seed used for random number generation. In the default case, a random seed is generated.
