Tutor description

Swarm robotics is the use a group of robots with relatively simple capabilities in a coordinated effort to achieve complex behaviors or goals [1,2]. The three characteristics by which swarms are evaluated are: robustness (the ability to continue functioning in some fashion in a degraded or abnormal state), flexibility (the ability to deal with new or changing requirements), and scalability (the ability to handle an increase or decrease in size)

The three characteristics by which swarms are evaluated are: robustness (the ability to continue functioning in some fashion in a degraded or abnormal state), flexibility (the ability to deal with new or changing requirements), and scalability (the ability to handle an increase or decrease in size) [2]. The goal of this paper is to give a brief background in the concepts of swarm robotics/swarm intelligence and to review a collection of works in the field including: biologically inspired sensor swarms, undersea sensors and sensor networks, and satellite swarms.IntroductionResearch in the field of Swarm Robotics centers on the study of the use of relatively simple robots which, through communication, work together to accomplish a more complex goal. It is inspired by, but not limited to the emergent behavior observed in social insects [1]. This emergent behavior or swarm intelligence can be leveraged to accomplish tasks in a variety of different, seeming unrelated fields. Taking their cues from Mother Nature, Joseph Fronczek and Nadipuram Prasad of New Mexico State University have proposed a swarm of highly sensitive pres
