We study a multi-robot assignment problem for multi-target tracking. The proposed problem can be viewed as the mixed packing and covering problem. To deal with a limitation on both sensing and communication ranges, a distributed approach is taken into consideration. A local algorithm gives theoretical bounds on both the running time and approximation ratio to an optimal solution. We employ a local algorithm of max-min linear programs to solve the proposed task. Simulation result shows that a local algorithm is an effective solution to the multi-robot task allocation.
