Swarm Robotics

Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multirobot systems which consist of large numbers of mostly simple physical robots. It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment. This approach emerged on the field of artificial swarm intelligence, as well as the biological studies of insects, ants and other fields in nature, where swarm behaviour occurs.

Swarm Robotics - Goals and Applications
... Both miniaturization and cost are key-factors in swarm robotics ... These are the constraints in building large groups of robotics therefore the simplicity of the individual team member should be emphasized ... This should motivate a swarm-intelligent approach to achieve meaningful behavior at swarm-level, instead of the individual level ...
