This paper proposes an alternative docking charger station for mobile robots. One crucial task in swarm robots scenario is to find low battery robots and recover them. Overcoming this problem requires a versatile mobile charging station that is able to actively locate and charge inactive mobile robots unlike the conventional stationary docking stations. The mobile charger robot should perform independent tasks other than the swarm robots global task. It uses similar communication method with other swarm robots, however new preprogrammed instructions are required to facilitate battery charging task for swarm robots.
