Abstract
We are interested in the challenges of long-term, long-distance tight multirobot coordination. In this paper, we discuss the Constrained Exploration domain that pushes the boundaries of tightly-coordinated multirobot teams. We formalize this problem and consider the role of intentional coordination approaches in addressing its numerous challenges. Finally, we present three intentional coordination approaches to solving different aspects of the domain.
