Abstract

Foraging is a canonical problem in swarm robotics. A number of algorithms exist for adaptive division of labour in robotic swarms. However, mathematical modelling of adaptive foraging is a challenging problem, and this talk will outline new work in the swarm robotics group of the Bristol Robotics Lab, aimed at developing macroscopic models which can predict overall swarm foraging behaviour from low-level robot control parameters.
