Short and Robust Communication Paths in Dynamic Wireless Networks
Abstract. We consider the problem of finding and maintaining communication paths in wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). We consider this problem as a bi-objective problem when...

A Deterministic Metaheuristic Approach Using "Logistic Ants" for Combinatorial Optimization
Abstract. Ant algorithms are usually derived from a stochastic modeling based on some specific probability laws. We consider in this paper a full deterministic model of "logis...

A Robotic Validation of the Attractive Field Model: An Inter-disciplinary Model of Self-regulatory Social Systems
Division of labour in multi-robot systems or multi-robot task allocation (MRTA) is a challenging research issue. We propose to solve this MRTA problem using a set of previously pub...

Formal Verification of Probabilistic Swarm Behaviours
Robot swarms provide a way for a number of simple robots to work together to carry out a task. While swarms have been found to be adaptable, fault-tolerant and widely applicable, d...

Exploiting Loose Horizontal Coupling in Evolutionary Swarm Robotics
We describe a theory from Herbert Simon that links the structure of complex systems to increased speed of evolution, and argue the position that this theory can be beneficial to ev...

Self-organized Task Partitioning in a Swarm of Robots
Abstract. In this work, we propose a method for self-organized adaptive task partitioning in a swarm of robots. Task partitioning refers to the decomposition of a task into less co...

Autonomous Multi-agent Cycle Based Patrolling
We introduce a novel multi-agent patrolling strategy. By assumption, the swarm of agents performing the task consists of very low capability ant-like agents. The agents have littl...

Coordinating Heterogeneous Swarms through Minimal Communication among Homogeneous Sub-swarms
robotics, the agents are often assumed to be identical. In this abstract, we argue that the cooperation between swarms of different kinds of robots can enhance the capabilities of ...

Theoretical Properties of Two ACO Approaches for the Traveling Salesman Problem
Ant colony optimization (ACO) has been widely used for different combinatorial optimization problems. In this paper, we investigate ACO algorithms with respect to their runtime beh...

Positional Communication and Private Information in Honeybee Foraging Models
Honeybees coordinate foraging efforts across vast areas through a complex system of advertising and recruitment. One mechanism for coordination is the waggle dance, a movement patt...
