Leaky Integrate Neuron Model for Multi Robot Task Allocation

The evolution of methodologies in Multi Robot Task Allocation is surveyed. Various classifications of Taxonomy in the domain is compared to the relevance of its application. An idea for a novel ‘Leaky Integrate and Fire’ Neuron Model for Multi Robot Task Allocation is presented along with the explanation of its biological theory. This is used as an inspiration to model a setup of heterogenous autonomous Multi Robot system in a farmland environment. The model would be simulated as a software using Python. Performance of the system will be evaluated and compared to that of a traditional Market based approach. Findings shall be drawn and Results are to be summarised.
