The Effect of Coalition Imbalance on Multi-Robot
Teams
Abstract-- The notion of coalition imbalance refers to the vari-
ance in the individual contributions of team members towards the
completion of a multi-agent (robot) task. Until now, the literature
has studied imbalance purely from a fault tolerance perspective
where more balanced coalitions were shown to be more robust to
individual robot failure. However, the effect that balancing has
on the overall performance of a multi-robot team still remains
unexplored. This paper attempts to identify the relationship
between the imbalance level of a multi-robot team and team
performance. Experiments were conducted with a simulated
multi-robot soccer team to demonstrate that teams lying at the
