The application of teams of autonomous, cooperating robots in areas which are hazardous and inaccessible for humans is highly desirable. Furthermore, a decentralized approach allows for more fail-prune algorithms, but has its own challenges. To improve the capability of such multi-robot systems, we built an infrastructure that allows to share resources in a distributed system and to easily find and contact agents, even from other ecosystems. This poster provides a motivation for this research and illustrates parts of the architecture.
