Cognitive Systems Monographs #9: Space-Time Continuous Models of Swarm Robotic Systems: Supporting Global-To-Local Programmingby Heiko Hamann
Synopses & Reviews
In this book, a genericmodel in as far as possiblemathematical closed-formis developed that predicts the behavior of large self-organizing robot groups (robot swarms) based on their control algorithm. In addition, an extensive subsumption of the relatively young and distinctive interdisciplinary research field of swarm robotics is emphasized. The connection to many related fields is highlighted and the concepts and methods borrowed from these fields are described shortly.
Space-Time Continuous Models of Swarm Robotic Systems presents a control-algorithm-based model that predicts the behavior of large self-organizing robot groups, or robot swarms. Readers will find an extensive look into the interdisciplinary research field of swarm robotics.
