-Robot swarms are complex and weird machines. A robot swarm is a distributed system, with a constantly changing communication topology, populated by a large number of individuals ​that act in the physical space. Robot swarms must react intelligently to environmental stimuli and interact with humans in a friendly manner. At NEST, we study how to best express swarm algorithms, how to make swarms aware of their internal state and the environment,​ and how to prevent the robocalipse. +Robot swarms are complex and weird machines.
