Swarm Robotics: From Biology to Robotics
by Ester Martinez Martin
Publisher: InTech 2010
Number of pages: 110
Swarm robotics is focused on the coordination of decentralised, self-organised multi-robot systems in order to describe such a collective behaviour as a consequence of local interactions with one another and with their environment. This book is focused on real practical applications by analyzing how individual robotic agents should behave in a robotic swarm in order to achieve a specific goal such as target localization or path planning.
