Societies are formed as collaborative structures to execute tasks which are not possible or are difficult for individuals alone. There are many type of biological societies, but societies formed by machines or robots are still rare. The concept offers, however, interesting possibilities especially in applications where a long term fully autonomous operation(More)

Societies are formed as collaborative structures to execute tasks which are not possible or are difficult for individuals alone. There are many types of biological societies formed by animals, but societies formed by machines or robots are still rare. This paper introduces the concept of an application oriented robot society formed by autonomous underwater(More)
In our research we use a biologically inspired term robot society as a generic technical concept to describe a group of autonomous mobile robots working together towards a common goal. These robots operate under diverse interactions with each other and with the environment. Equipped basically only with simple behaviors they are in a way gaining(More)
