Call For Papers

Description:

Swarm robotics is a relatively new approach to control the operation of a multi-robot system, which consists of a large numbers of physically simple robots. In this context, the robots dispose of limited sensing and acting resources. It is well known now that from such systems and with the right control actions, the desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots of the swarm and their interactions with the environment. This is property is usually identified as swarm intelligence. The control actions (algorithms) are usually simple, and in most cases, inspired form biological systems such as ants colonies, bird flocks, fish schools and/or social as well as economic systems, among and other existing fields, where the swarming behavior occurs.

The focus of this special issue to be published in Elsevier Journal on Neurocomputing will be on all aspects of efficient distributed control of robot swarms, and mainly distributed and learning algorithms for swarm robotics, to solve operational problems to manage the swarm, such as clustering, dynamic task allocation, localization, among many others. Applications to solve real-world problems, especially those dedicated to nano-robotics, are also welcome.
