Limited resources and uncertainty pose a substantial problem for multi-robot exploration of unknown environments. This research paper looks to determine the optimal time to terminate robot exploration while maximizing information gathered. Whilst making this determination, the system's resources and capabilities must be taken into account. To see if our strategy works, we ran many simulations in varying environments. The results of this research are important for real-world uses like robot exploration, search and rescue missions, and automated surveillance. Determining when to stop exploring can help the system save resources, explore faster, and make better decisions.
