This thesis defines the Broadcasting Automata model as an intuitive and complete
method of distributed pattern formation, partitioning and distributed geometric
computation. The system is examined within the context of Swarm Robotics
whereby large numbers of minimally complex robots may be deployed in a variety
of circumstances and settings with goals as diverse as from toxic spill containment
to geological survey. Accomplishing these tasks with such simplistic machines is
complex and has… CONTINUE READING
