Multi-robotics places a potentially large number of independent robotic agents in a given situation where they may
interact cooperatively toward a common task. However, by having each of these robotic agents essentially identical, the
overall scope of their mission is limited. By fractionating their capabilities with varying degrees of specialization in a
hierarchical fashion, the mission capability can be greatly expanded. Test prototype examples are discussed of a large
carrier robotic vehicle containing several smaller specialized robotic vehicles, all teleoperated, which can interact
cooperatively, both sequentially and in parallel toward a common task.
