Special Issue on Swarm Robotics
The special issue will be dedicated to the publication of original research related to swarm robotics, which can be loosely defined as the application of SI to the control of a "swarm" of robots. It aims to compile studies on the analysis and synthesis of embodied swarms. Differently from other applications of SI, the physical embodiment of the agents and their realistic interactions as a consequence of this embodiment are emphasized. Specifically, the submitted papers are expected to address one or both of the following questions: What are the principles behind the emergence of intelligence in natural swarms? How should individual embodied agents be designed and controlled so that the swarm as a whole can perform user-defined tasks?
