Swarm Aggregation

Aggregation is a useful building block behaviour that can allow a swarm of robots to interact with each other or a user more easily. Previous work on swarm robot aggregation has assumed that the capabilities of individual robots are quite limited. We test whether incorporating odometry as an additional capability is helpful and make the argument that odometry is both realizable and biologically plausible.
