Provided is a tangible, non-transitory, machine readable medium storing instructions that when executed by a processor effectuates operations including: capturing, with at least one exteroceptive sensor, readings of an environment and capturing, with at least one proprioceptive sensor, readings indicative of displacement of a wheeled device; estimating, with the processor using an ensemble of simulated positions of possible new locations of the wheeled device, the readings of the environment, and the readings indicative of displacement, a corrected position of the wheeled device to replace a last known position of the wheeled device; determining, by the processor using the readings of the exteroceptive sensor, a most feasible position of the wheeled device as the corrected position; and, transmitting, by the processor, status information of tasks performed by the wheeled device to an external processor, wherein the status information initiates a second wheeled device to perform a second task.
