Collective and Cooperative Group Behaviors: Biologically Inspired Experiments in Robotics

  title={Collective and Cooperative Group Behaviors: Biologically Inspired Experiments in Robotics},
  author={Alcherio Martinoli and Francesco Mondada},
This paper describes the implementation of two biologically inspired collective behaviours on a group of Khepera miniature mobile robots. The rst experiment is concerned with the gathering and clustering of randomly distributed small cylinders. In the second experiment the group of robots are expected to remove long sticks from holes, requiring a synchronous collaboration between two robots. The results are quanti ed, analysed and discussed, showing interesting (both positive and negative… CONTINUE READING
