Special Issue on  "Recent Advances in Swarm Robotics" in Applied Sciences


Dear Colleagues,

Swarm robotics research has been present for some decades, providing
nature-inspired algorithms in swarms of robots. During this time, many
different algorithms have focused on specific tasks, such as
coordination, cooperation, organization, division of lab·or, or task
allocation among others. However, not many of those works have addressed
the problem of unifying base algorithms that could lay the groundwork of
high-level behaviors.

This special issue aims to provide research work on base algorithms for
the emergence of complex swarm robotics behaviors, providing novel
solutions and discussions for future trends in the field. Local,
situated, and embodied communication, as well as stigmergy, have a
special role in laying the foundations of these algorithms.

The topics of interest of the special issue include, but are not limited
to the following:

- Distributed communication
- Dynamic task allocation
- Aggregation
- Pattern formation
- Collective movement
- Division of labor
- Leadership paradigms
- Clustering
- Self-organization
- Cooperative control
- Distributed sensing
- Distributed action
- Distributed localization
- Object localization
- Swarm synchronization
- Fault tolerance
