Abstract Sensor networks are distributed systems that detect phe-
nomena to produce detailed environmental assessments. The use of
multirobot systems for carrying sensors around the environment rep-
resents a solution that has recently received considerable attention.
In this paper we present an architecture for a multirobot system that
performs tasks related to environmental perception; in particular, it is
devoted to monitoring electro-magnetic fields.
I. INTRODUCTION
In environmental monitoring, any system that has to detect
phenomena reliably and to produce detailed environmental as-
sessments should be organized in a distributed fashion [1], [2].
These systems are usually sensor networks in which nodes are
