Real-time Evolution of iAnt Robot Foraging Strategies

Joshua P. Hecker and Melanie E. Moses

Abstract (Excerpt)

Central-place foraging is a canonical task in swarm robotics. For this task, robots are programmed to search an area for resources and aggregate these resources at a central location. Foraging can be instantiated in a number of real-world applications, such as hazardous waste clean-up, search and rescue, and in-situ resource utilization.
