Definition: 'Swarm robotics term coins the


definition that number of small robots
communicating with each other to perform a
specific task.

Collective robotics
Why invest in collections of robots, why not

build a reliable individual robot?

Task difficult (or impossible) for one robot


Can be performed better by many
Redundancy task more likely to be completed
Simplicity many cheaper robots instead of one

expensive one.

Swarm intelligence: The emergent


behaviour observed in social insects is called
swarm intelligence
Avoidance rule
Copy rule
Center rule

What kinds of
collections?
Possibilities range from
remote controlled robots
centrally controlled robots
completely autonomous robots

Robots using swarm


intelligence

These are very efficient.


Time consumption is less.
Can be used to do the tasks which are

hazardous for humans.


They are trustworthy.
Can be used in various applications.

Disadvantages of
centralised control and
Central control: failure of controller implies
communication.
failure of whole system
Robot to robot communication becomes very

complex as number of robots increases.


Communication bottlenecks
Adding new robots means changing the
communication and control system

CONCLUSION
Robots are going to be an important part of

the future. Once robots are useful, group of


robots are the next step, and will have
tremendous potential to benefit mankind.
Software designed to run on large groups of
robots is the key needed to unlock this
potential.
