Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


Robots are increasingly being used to solve real-world tasks such as vacuuming or
assembly-line work in industrial applications. Controllers for these robots are typically
designed by engineers following textbook guidelines. Although this methodology has
proven to be very successful in such applications, it quickly meets its limitations as tasks become more complex. Collective robotic systems, where groups of robots cooperate to solve a distributed task in partially unknown environments, are an example of systems that ...
