It is a characteristic of swarm robotics that modelling the overall swarm behaviour in terms of the low-level behaviours of individual robots is very difficult. Yet if swarm robotics is to make the transition from the laboratory to real-world enginee... Read More about Modelling a wireless connected swarm of mobile robots.

This paper proposes a novel search and rescue concept that aims to overcome the most basic obstacle in utilising a search and rescue teleoperated robot for a long distance energy autonomy. The concept utilizes a number of small robots capable of crea... Read More about A feasibility study for energy autonomy in multi robot search and rescue operations.
