The multi-robot cooperative planning is gained significant attention in recent past mainly for the evaders hunting task. In evaders hunting, the robot nodes required to recognize their other team members and considering their current positions and capabilities to catch the stationary or moving evaders effectively through the cooperating path planning approach. The primary challenge to design cooperative multi-robot evader hunting system is efficient and adaptive coordination of multiple autonomous mobile robots with less delay and communication overhead in presence of big-size obstacles. The current solutions suffered from repeated hunting problem under the inaccessible network conditions due to the presence of big-size obstacles and ineffective utilization of known nodes information. In this paper, to alleviate the problem of repeated hunting and inefficient catching of all evaders in the network, we proposed the adaptive Bio-inspired Neural Network (ABNN) using the new shunting equation with the capability of adaptive hunting of all evaders in the system. We design ABNN based on the implicit robot to predict the next path to catch evaders efficiently by real robots. The use of implicit robot helps to prevent the big sized evaders and efficiently utilize the evader’s information. The simulation results demonstrate that ABNN performs efficient evaders hunting under the presence of big size obstacles.
