Abstract

Swarm intelligence is a rapidly growing area of robotics research that has the potential to reshape traditional approaches in many different fields, including military, agriculture, and medicine. However, a lack of widely available development platforms for swarm applications has hindered progress by forcing researchers to recreate previous efforts. The goal of this MQP is to provide a framework for developers to easily realize their own projects. The focus of this project is on identifying, programming, and evaluating the common behaviors that compose complex tasks such as foraging. The software components we developed can be easily reused and extended by other developers to realize other foraging algorithms.
