Strategies for Collective Minimalist Mobile Robots - Engineering Research Series (Rep) v. 6 (Hardback)Chris Melhuish (author)
- We can order this
Intercommunication between many tiny robots allows for problem areas to be detected and concentrated upon, bringing the pack of robots together.
The developments and research reported here show the ways in which engineers are trying to mimic biological systems and behaviour to find solutions to engineering problems. Dr Melhuish's research aims to analyse various naturally occurring collective systems as models for robotic system development. He applied the results of observations of biological system behaviour among social insects, such as ants, to robot activity. Much of Strategies for Collective Minimalist Mobile Robots is concerned with a review of the remarkable achievements of groups of simple insects and the observation that collective achievement can far exceed the sum of individual performances. Although at an early stage of development and management, collective robotic technology has created a high level of interest from those involved in R & D among professional engineers.
