  title={Congregation Behaviour in a Robot Swarm Using Pheromone Communication},
  author={Anies Hannawati Purnamadjaja and R. Andrew Russell},
Characteristically, social insects are extremely reliant on their use of pheromones to maintain their social activities as a colony unit. This paper describes an on-going project to investigate the possibility of using pheromone communication in a robot swarm.

One of its main functions is to attract and… CONTINUE READING
