Swarm robotics

Swarming robots

Swarm robotics is a new approach to coordinate the behaviours of large number of relatively simple robots in decentralised manner.

Probabilistic modelling in swarm robotic systems

This project uses probabilistic modelling technique to understand the impact of individual control parameters on the swarm behaviours, and thus to optimise the controller design.

Symbiotic evolutionary robot organisms (SYMBRION)

This EU FP7 funded project is investigating novel principles of behaviour, adaptation and learning for self-assembling robot "organisms" based on artificial evolution and evolutionary computational approaches.

The emergence of artificial culture in robot societies

A profound question that transcends disciplinary boundaries is "how can culture emerge and evolve as a novel property in groups of social animals?"

Robotics Competition - euRathlon

euRathlon is a new outdoor robotics competition, which will invite teams to test the intelligence and autonomy of their robots in realistic mock emergency-response scenarios.

Verifiable Autonomy

In the next 20 years, we expect to see autonomous vehicles, aircraft, robots, devices, swarms, and software, all of which will (and must) be able to make their own decisions without human intervention.
