In this paper, we present a physical implementation of Random Peer-to-Peer (RP2P) communication for use in a multiplerobot system and analyze its performance. Traditionally, multiple-robot systems have either broadcast all of their interrobot communication or have avoided explicit communication altogether. RP2P communication, on the other hand, allows efficient system-level communication while retaining the errorcorrection capabilities of peer-to-peer connections. We demonstrate that RP2P communication can be implementedwith off-the-shelf components. MRS as large as ten robots areinvestigated and it is demonstrated that message rates as highas 50 messages/second are easily achievable using TCPconnections and 802.11B wireless interface.
