Abstract

Swarm engineering, which uses minimally intelligent individual agents to solve problems, aims to solve real world problems that other technologies cannot solve as efficiently. Our group addresses the swarm decision problem, in which a swarm collectively makes a decision, using physical robots to test out theories on how to solve the problem. We have developed a robot platform called the IMSAbot. This platform is being applied to the swarm decision problem, and its design and results will be presented.
