A Review of Swarm Robotics
In this paper, we describe swarm robots as a new approach to multi-robot system (MRS) coordination which consists of large number of relatively simple robots. These robots behaviour is inspired from nature’s social insect such as ants, bees, wasps, termites etc. The most exceptional characteristics of swarm robots are its ability to work cooperatively to achieve a specific goal. In this paper, the most salient aspects to build a multi-robot system such as Biological inspiration, communication, control approach, motion coordination, task allocation, mapping and localization, object transportation, reconfigurable robotics and learning along with their problems and algorithms have been discussed.
