This paper investigates the problem of localizing a team of robots in an indoor environment while simultaneously keeping a robust formation and performing group motion. A distributed observer is proposed to estimate the positions of mobile robots as well as the landmarks under a common global frame. Every robot uses its available local relative measurements, as well as the estimated relative measurements to its neighbors in order to keep a robust formation. Simultaneously, each robot estimates the positions of all the landmarks based on the available on-board relative measurements but also based on the estimated positions from its neighbors. We provide the L2-stability analysis of the closed-loop system where the group is also allowed to maneuver in the unknown environment. Simulation results are also given to show the efficacy of the method.
