Designing Robot Swarms

This project looks at the challenges involved in modeling, understanding and designing of multi-robot systems.

Robustness in Foraging E-puck Swarms Through Recruitment

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.

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

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.
