Animat Swarms and Spatial Emergence Phenomena
Swarms of microscopic organisms are well known in nature and have been shown to exhibit many unexpected collective behaviours. We model a swarm of artificial animats in a model wh...

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...

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...

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 ...

Cooperative Stigmergic Navigation in a Heterogeneous Robotic Swarm
We study self-organized cooperation in a heterogeneous robotic swarm consisting of two sub-swarms. The robots of each sub-swarm play distinct roles based on their different charac...
