Conformity and Nonconformity in Collective Robotics: A Case Study

Gregory Vorobyev, Andrew Vardy, Wolfgang Banzhaf

Abstract

In this work, we develop a social behavioral model designed for multi-agent systems for solving the collective sorting task. Experiments show that under this model agents are capable of improving their performance significantly and can achieve better results than conventional swarms of agents lacking communication and social abilities.
