Collective Intelligence from biological and social to robotic systems

March 20 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Abstract: Swarm robotics is an emerging field of robotics inspired by collective behavior of social insects (swarms). While the usage of single robots is well established, the use of group of robots is an increasingly relevant topic of research. Compared to a single robot, a swarm is more robust, flexible, efficient and scalable. The application of swarm design to drones and aquatic vehicles is gaining a momentum. Potential applications are -among the others- environmental monitoring, disaster rescue missions, complex structures inspection. While from a theoretical and scientific perspective it can be considered a well-established field, its application to Industry is starting to develop now. This talk will start from a description of the main theoretical aspects, moving to applications to Robotics in the environment, highlighting challenges and first results.
