In this paper, we propose a probabilistic consensus-based multi-robot search strategy that is robust to communication link failures, and thus is suitable for disaster affected areas. The robots, capable of only local communication, explore a bounded environment according to a random walk modeled by a discrete-time discrete-state (DTDS) Markov chain and exchange information with neighboring robots, resulting in a time-varying communication network topology. The proposed strategy is proved to achieve consensus, here defined as agreement on the presence of a static target, with no assumptions on the connectivity of the communication network. Using numerical simulations, we investigate the effect of the robot population size, domain size, and information uncertainty on the consensus time statistics under this scheme. We also validate our theoretical results with 3D physics-based simulations in Gazebo. The simulations demonstrate that all robots achieve consensus in finite time with the proposed search strategy over a range of robot densities in the environment.
