Abstract: This paper describes a multi-robot system purposed to guide a group of people that encompasses a strategy to conduct and crowd persons by a team of three mobile robots. It includes: a methodology to localise (track) the members of the group; a suitable multi-robot system architecture design; and a motion planner that synchronises and controls (guides) the trajectory of the group. A key problem in the implementation of the system is a way of controlling the conduction with no communication between humans and the team of robots (no signal of any type for guiding). Some experimental and simulation results are presented that exhibit the effectiveness of the overall system.
