The Architecture of Ant-Based Clustering to Improve Topographic Mapping
Abstract. This paper analyzes the popular ant-based clustering approach of Lumer/Faieta. Analysis of formulae unveils that ant-based clustering is strongly related to Kohonen’s S...

Rigorous Analyses for the Combination of Ant Colony Optimization and Local Search
Abstract. Ant colony optimization (ACO) is a metaheuristic that produces good results for a wide range of combinatorial optimization problems. Often such successful applications us...

Modeling Phase Transition in Self-organized Mobile Robot Flocks
We implement a self-organized flocking behavior in a group of mobile robots and analyze its transition from an aligned state to an unaligned state. We briefly describe the robot an...

Autonomous Reconfiguration in a Self-assembling Multi-robot System
Self-assembling multi-robot systems can, in theory, overcome the physical limitations of individual robots by connecting to each other to form particular physical structures (morph...

Integration of ACO in a Constraint Programming Language
We propose to integrate ACO in a Constraint Programming (CP) language. Basically, we use the CP language to describe the problem to solve by means of constraints and we use the CP ...

Lattice Formation in Space for a Swarm of Pico Satellites
We present a distributed control strategy that lets a swarm of satellites autonomously form a lattice in orbit around a planet. The system, based on the artificial potential field ...

Enhancing the Cooperative Transport of Multiple Objects
In this paper we present an approach to the cooperative transport of multiple objects in swarm robotics. The approach is motivated by the observation that the performance of cooper...

Dissemination of Information with Fair Load Distribution in Self-organizing Grids
This paper presents an ant-inspired algorithm for building a self-organizing information system of a Grid. Ant-inspired mobile agents travel the Grid through P2P (peer-to-peer) int...

Two-Level ACO for Haplotype Inference Under Pure Parsimony
Abstract. Haplotype Inference is a challenging problem in bioinformatics that consists in inferring the basic genetic constitution of diploid organisms on the basis of their genoty...
