Antbots: A Feasible Visual Emulation of Pheromone Trails for Swarm Robots
In this paper we present an experimental setup to model the pheromone trail based foraging behaviour of ants using a special phosphorescent glowing paint. We have built two custom ...

Evaluating the Robustness of Activator-Inhibitor Models for Cluster Head Computation
Activator-inhibitor models have been widely used to explain several morphogenetic processes. They have also been used to engineer algorithms for computer graphics, distributed syst...

A Cooperative Network Game Efficiently Solved via an Ant Colony Optimization Approach
Abstract. In this paper, a Cooperative Network Game (CNG) is introduced. In this game, all players have the same goal: display a video content in real time, with no cuts and low bu...

Mobile Stigmergic Markers for Navigation in a Heterogeneous Robotic Swarm
We study self-organized navigation in a heterogeneous robotic swarm consisting of two types of robots: small wheeled robots, called foot-bots, and flying robots that can attach to ...

Opinion Dynamics for Decentralized Decision-Making in a Robot Swarm
In this paper, we study how an opinion dynamics model can be the core of a collective decision-making mechanism for swarm robotics. Our main result is that when opinions represent ...

Cooperation in a Heterogeneous Robot Swarm through Spatially Targeted Communication
Abstract. We consider a heterogeneous swarm robotic system composed of wheeled and aerial robots called foot-bots and eye-bots, respectively. The foot-bots are able to physically c...

Evolution of Self-organised Path Formation in a Swarm of Robots
We present a set of experiments in which a robotic swarm manages to collectively explore the environment, forming a path to navigate between two target areas, which are too distant...

Functional Blueprints: An Approach to Modularity in Grown Systems
Abstract. The engineering of grown systems poses fundamentally different system integration challenges than ordinary engineering of static designs. On the one hand, a grown system ...
