We have done some experiments to test algorithms of swarm aggregation. Basically, we would like to see how our robots can maintain their connectivities when we use probablistic directional communication as the attractive forces. We also manupulated the environment to observe how robots can search their swarm and how the swarm can gather their lost members.
The results are quite opministic!
The first experiment presents how three small scatted groups will cluster into united swarm.
The second experiment confirmed the robustness of swarm aggregation
The third experiment presents how robots can search their swarm and how they swarm can gather their lost members. To do that, we manipulated the environment during the experiment
