Demonstrative videos

Below we show demonstrative videos of collective behaviors designed by Mate, Chocolate and EvoSpace. We conceived three missions for our research: ANY-POINT CLOSENESS, NETWORKED COVERAGE, and CONDITIONAL COVERAGE.We conducted experiments in simulation and with a swarm of 20 e-puck robots.
