pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Information Flow Regulation in Preferentially Foraging Swarms

Swarms are tasked with foraging from multiple sources in dynamic environments where source locations change periodically. Preferential foraging leads to a better swarm performance, provided that information flow among robots, that results from recruitment, is regulated

Robustness of Foraging E-puck Swarms

Swarms of five e-puck robots are used in a semi-virtual environment, facilitated by the VICON positioning system. Recruitment can make swarms more robust to noise in robot global positioning data.

Citations count fails to measure the impact of research

Academic career progress is often judged by so-called "h-index", that measures how much your research is being cited. I recently had a detailed look at what exactly the citations, specifically those reported by Google Scholar, amount to. Only a relatively small fraction of the reported citations corresponded to research being applied or reproduced in a meaningful way.

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.
