Market-based mechanisms for real-time dynamic coordinated task assignment of physical multi-agent systems are studied. Specifically, a number of auction mechanisms and bidding strategies, as well as swapping, are considered. The physical robot experiments require addressing real-time and fault-tolerance issues in a dynamic environment. We provide a small scale validation for work with software simulations.
