[Welcome]

Lenka Pitonakova Welcome to my web site!
Please follow my Twitter feed if you would like to receive updates from my blog. My most important activities currently include:

Post-doctoral research fellow in swarm intelligence
The Hive Mind game: Collective construction with robots

What I've been recently up to

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.
How to compile code for e-puck robots on your computer
Compiling code natively on e-puck robots or cross-compiling on your computer can be very tedious. Luckily, there is a third option: compiling code on a virtualised robot system on your computer, then sending the program onto the robot.
Coding for tomorrow: Why is good code important?
"Why should I care about how my code is written, as long as it works?" I will argue here that well-structured and well-written code not only saves time on a project, it also helps you to invest your time in a way that is meaningful for your future work.
The Hive Mind
The Hive Mind is a sci-fi puzzle game about insect-inspired construction with robots. The player takes on the role of an Overseer who was sent to an alien planet and designs simple rules that robots use to create structures brick by brick.
Task Allocation in Foraging Robot Swarms
Bee-inspired self-regulation algorithms for robot swarms that deliver items into a single drop-off location and need to prevent congestion.
