|Additional Information:||This paper was initially presented (following full paper review) at the Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) conference at Imperial College, Sept 2005. A revised version of the paper was submitted to a special journal issue of selected revised TAROS papers and accepted following further full paper review.
The work, in collaboration with Michael Fisher and co-workers at the Liverpool Verification Laboratory, Univ of Liverpool, develops what is believed to be the world's first (i.e. original) use of a formal logic to specify the properties, including emergent behaviours, of a robotic swarm. The work is significant because future real-world application of robotic swarms will require rigorous methods for validation of correct behaviour.|
