Architecture Test - New with ROS

Hi guys, i’m new here,

I’m doing a project for my master’s degree, I need some direction .
I have to test one architecture based on ontology.
My project is: I have to build 3 robots(one leader and 2 slaves) , and they have to communicate with each other. They have a mission of walk a path diverting from obstacles. The leader robot have to check in a cloud robotic if all robots have same architecture( which i’m testing) and if they have potential to walk a path, then they will do the mission.

Can you guys help with good materials/documentations/books and directions?
Thank you.

Not sure of your constraints… you mentioned cloud, but it’s not clear to me if that means they must be Internet connected.

Otherwise, this sounds like an interesting application for a mesh network with xbee or similar radio modules. That’s on my list of things to try once I master ROS itself and have my robot(s) cruising around outdoors.

If you’re not familiar with xbee radios, they are available at most hobbyist electronics suppliers in many forms depending on your communications requirements.
