A Distributed Vision System (DVS) is an infrastructure for mobile robot navigation. The system consists of vision agents embedded in an environment and connected with a computer network, observes events in the environment, and provides various information to robots. We have developed a prototype of the DVS which consists of sixteen vision agents and simultaneously navigates two robots. This paper describes the detail of the prototype system, shows the robustness through experimentation, and considers problems in applying a multi-agent system to a real robot system through development of the DVS.
