AAMAS 2014 Foraging

In this demonstration, we want to directly transfer the principles of bee-inspired algorithms in swarm intelligence to swarm robotics. We present the first results of this implementation, where a subset of the bee algorithms are implemented on multiple turtlebots with the goal to simulate a food foraging application. For this we implemented means for locally detecting the location, speed and direction of the other robots using visual markers, applying collision avoidance algorithms and simulating local communication over wi-fi.
