Abstract

Aggregation is a widely observed phenomenon in social insects and animals such as cockroaches, honeybees and birds. From swarm robotics perspective [3], aggregation can be defined as gathering randomly distributed robots to form an aggregate. Honeybee aggregation is an example of cue-based aggregation method that was studied in [4]. In that study, micro robots were deployed in a gradually lighted environment to mimic the behavior of honeybees which aggregate around a zone that has the optimal temperature (BEECLUST). In our previous study [2], two modifications on BEECLUST – dynamic velocity and comparative waiting time – were applied to increase the performance of aggregation.
