To Vote or Not To Vote: A Swarm Approach

Added on 19/01/2012

I’ve never voted. I am not sure why, I perhaps don't care enough. People always tell me: 'Imagine everybody would decide not to vote! You have to vote because every small opinion counts towards the final results'. I've never agreed with it, although I couldn't express why...

Installing Starcraft I from SCII USB Stick

Added on 16/01/2012

I bought Starcraft II Wings of Liberty Collector's edition quite some time ago but only recently wanted to install Starcraft I that came on the Raynor's dog tag USB stick included in the SC II box. However, the problem was that I copied the contents of the stick onto my machine when I bought the game and formatted the USB drive in order to use it - well as a USB drive. When I wanted to install SC I from my hard-drive, the registration code was nowhere to be found.

The website is launched!

I finally launch my new web site. This version has a new design and is made using PHP (CodeIgniter) and JQuery in order to support mobile devices.

V-REP, Gazebo or ARGoS? A robot simulators comparison
Let’s have a look at three commonly used open-source simulators for robotics: V-REP, Gazebo and ARGoS, to find out which one suits your project the best.
Designing Effective Roadmaps for Robotics Innovation
Automated factories, autonomous delivery drones, self-driving cars: these and similar technologies will soon touch every aspect of our lives. An engaging discussion about how these technologies are regulated and innovated took place at the IROS 2017 conference.
The Information-Cost-Reward framework for understanding robot swarm foraging
The Information-Cost-Reward (ICR) framework relates the way in which robots obtain and share information about where work needs to be done to the swarm’s ability to exploit that information in order to perform work efficiently in the context of a particular task and environment.
Behaviour-Data Relations Modelling Language For Multi-Robot Control Algorithms
Behaviour-Data Relations Modeling Language (BDRML) explicitely represents behaviours and data that robots utilise, as well as relationships between them. This allows BDRML to express control algorithms where robots cooperate and share information with each other while interacting with the environment.
Robot swarms in action
Watch e-puck robots collect resources and bring them back to base. While the previous simulation work helped us to learn a lot about the advantages and disadvantages of communication in swarms, doing similar experiments with real robots is already revealing interesting new things.
