Cooperative robotics is very different from working on a single robot before. Cooperative robots can perform tasks that were previously impossible with a single robot. This robot research can be applied in computer science, artificial intelligence, and electrical engineering. This research aims to deal with tasks that are difficult or impossible to perform with a single robot. For this purpose, we propose a Se-Re (Search-and-Rescue) algorithm. In addition, the proposed algorithm is designed to allow multiple robots to collaborate in the area of work. Robots use wireless communication to collaborate and are organized in groups, which create environmental maps and share data with each other. The robot uses the shared area map to create a global map. Using this information, the robot does not revisit the previously visited area. The proposed algorithm can be applied both indoors and outdoors. Indoors can be used in general buildings as well as livestock housing, and outdoors can be used for landmine removal, human search, and rescue.
