Demonstration video for “Studying Social Interactions using Swarm Robotics”:

This video demonstrates the real world and simulation experiments for studying social interactions, and valuation of behaviors using multi-robot systems.
In this project, different robotic platforms and available simulators are studied. The best set-up is chosen (i.e., Turtlebot and Stage simulator) and an appropriate interaction strategy is implemented (i.e., multiplayer prisoner’s dilemma).
The results of experiments confirm that the proposed framework can be helpful in validating and studying models of social behaviour.
