-Robot swarms are complex and weird machinesA 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 mannerAt NESTwe study how to best express swarm algorithmshow to make swarms aware of their internal state and the environment, and how to prevent the robocalipse.+  <div class="media-left media-top">
