Swarming robots

Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach

Swarming robots

When lots of robots come together to form shapes, spread in an area, or move in one direction, their motion has to be planned carefully. We discuss how mathematicians devise strategies to help swarms of robots behave like an experienced, coordinated team.
