This paper proposes a decentralized motion planning algorithm for multiple coopera-tive robots subject to constraints imposed by sen-sors and the communication network. It consists of decentralized receding horizon planners that reside on each vehicle to navigate to individual target positions. A routing algorithm which mod-ify the network topology based on the position of the robots and the limited range of transmitters and receivers, enables to reduce the communica-tion link failures. A comparative study between the proposed algorithm and other existing algo-rithms is provided in order to show the advantages especially in terms of traveling time and commu-nication link failure.
