In this paper, we study how flocking affects the accuracy and speed of individuals in longrange ‘‘migration’’. Specifically, we extend a behavior that can generate self-organized flocking in a swarm of robots to follow a homing direction sensed through the magnetic field of the Earth and evaluate how the final points reached by the flock are scattered in space and how the speed of the flock is affected. We propose that four factors influence the performance of migration, in the proposed… CONTINUE READING
