Artificial Evolution allows Better Self-Organized Task in Robot Swarm

Artificial Evolution allows Better Self-Organized Task in Robot Swarm

7 August 2015 – Swarm robotics deals with the control of large groups of relatively simple robots so that they perform tasks that go beyond their individual capabilities. Many biological systems execute tasks by dividing them into finer sub-tasks first, may be you have seen Ants working together in a large scale to achieve a […]
