In this paper, we consider a issue that the reliable and the inexpensive communication method in swarm robotics. The ants forage for preys by using pheromone trails. They lay down the pheromone trails between preys and a nest. By detecting the trail pheromone, they can find the preys. Though they do not have excellent intelligence, they can communicate with each other and cooperate by adding information to the environment, like a pheromone. This communication method has a merit that an agent… CONTINUE READING
