What I've been recently up to

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.
