Abstract

The significance of this paper is that it demonstrates emergent division of labour in a swarm of foraging robots, in which control is fully distributed and robots have only limited local sensing and communication. This paper provides the first (i.e. original) rigorous comparative analysis of different collective foraging strategies. Foraging is a powerful biological metaphor for a wide-range of distributed problems and the potential impact of this paper is in providing simple, realisable algorithms for optimal solutions using the swarm intelligence paradigm.
