20 April Seminar: Swarm robotics research at IRIDIA

When: 20 April at 15:30
Venue: Library Auditorium
Presenter: Prof Marco Dorigo (Université Libre de Bruxelles)

Abstract: Swarm robotics is about constructing and controlling swarms of autonomous robots that cooperate to perform tasks that go beyond the capabilities of the single robots in the swarm. In the talk, I will give an overview of recent and ongoing research in swarm robotics in my research lab, IRIDIA, at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. In particular, I will present results obtained with homogeneous and heterogeneous swarms of robots that cooperate both physically and logically in search and retrieval tasks.
