Area coverage is a well-known problem in multi robotic systems, and it is a typical requirement in various real-world applications. A common and popular approach in the robotic community is to use explicit forms of communication for task allocation and coordination. These approaches are susceptible to the loss of communication signal, and costly with high computational complexity. There are very few approaches which are focused on implicit forms of communication. In these approaches, robots rely only on their local information for task allocation and coordination. In this paper, a cooperative strategy is proposed by which a team of robots perform spraying a large field. The focus of this paper is to achieve task allocation and coordination using only the robots' local information. Keywords: Multi Robotic System, Cooperative Behaviour, Coopera- tive Area Coverage
