Communications and communication protocols play an important role in mobile robot systems able to address real world applications. Since the advent of high-performance wireless local area network (WLAN) and ad hoc networking technology at relatively low cost, their use for wireless communications among and control of mobile robots has become a practical proposition. However, in a large system with many mobile robots, it becomes difficult for all of robots to exchange information at a time because of their limited communication capacities. In this case, an ad-hoc robot networking scheme is more promising. This paper presents the background of mobile ad hoc networks, ad-hoc robot wireless communications, and their applications.
