|Additional Information:||The paper represented an original strand of research exploring behaviour transitions in a collective of minimalist robots. The work was bio-inspired and, as such, was undertaken by a multidisciplinary team of roboticists and biologists. The study provided a hypothesis of action selection transition in robots and a theoretical explanation along with detailed results with a fleet of robots which took careful observation over a number of weeks. This early work in bio-inspired collective systems has paved the way for BRL's current research programme in swarm systems. The paper is used in robotics degree courses and has 15 google scholar citations.|
