This article presents a simple adaptation mechanism to automatically adjust the ratio of foragers to resters (division of labor) in a swarm of foraging robots and hence maximize the net energy income to the swarm. Three adaptation rules are introduce... Read More about Towards energy optimization: Emergent task allocation in a swarm of foraging robots.
