This talk will focus on the rendezvous problem for multi-agent coordination and search. To rendezvous is to meet or to physically come together, and the applications of this problem range from everyday life to robotics. Example scenarios for these applications are friends coordinating a meeting or robots and autonomous vehicles coming together for load balancing or resource sharing. Each of these tasks require a rendezvous, which can involve a considerable amount of inter-agent coordination. My goal is to develop energy-efficient rendezvous algorithms so that the rendezvous process can be embedded within the primary task of the agents.
