Khepera for Collective Robotics:

  • A. Martinoli and F. Mondada. Collective and cooperative group behaviours: Biologically inspired experiments in robotics. In O. Khatib and J. K. Salisbury, editors, Proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on Experimental Robotics ISER-95, pages 3--10, Stanford, U.S.A., June 1995. Springer Verlag.

    A group of Khepera are programmed to share tasks using rules derived from the behaviour of ants. Their ant-inspired algorithm provides a simple and efficient means of regulating activity (the collection of food items) within teams of robots.
