  • In this paper, we discuss the concentration dependency of pheromone communication in swarm robotics. Instead of a pheromone trail and the insect antenna, we used ethanol and an alcohol sensor. This experimental system has a trade-off problem; high concentrations of the pheromone yield high signal strength but the signal duration is short, while low pheromone concentrations yield low signal strength but a long signal duration. We examined the optimal pheromone concentration for a swarm of robots… CONTINUE READING
