Generation of desired emergent behavior in swarm of micro-robots

Sergey Kornienko, Olga Kornienko, Paul Levi

Emergent behavior of swarm-like-systems results from interactions among system's components and cannot be directly preprogrammed. This kind of behavior is very efficient, flexible and is closely related with collective (or swarm-) intelligence. In the presented work we consider a derivation of local rules, creating such interactions, that lead to desired (technically useful) emergent behavior. As an example of collective emergence we choose forming spatial groups and assembling micro-objects by a swarm of micro-robots.
