Cooperative robots and their integration with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is an expanding area that still deserves significant research efforts. This paper presents a multi-robot surveillance application supported by a WSN. We investigate the problem of multi-robot coordination for target tracking and capturing. One key distinction of our problem model is to consider a WSN that supports the mission of the multi-robot team. We devised three mechanisms: centralized, distributed and market-based algorithms, which were extensively evaluated under the Player/Stage simulator. Simulation results show that the centralized approach is the most likely solution able to maintain an efficient system cost.
