-Robot swarms are complex and weird machinesA robot swarm is a distributed systemwith a constantly changing communication topologypopulated by a large number of that act in the physical space. Robot swarms must react intelligently to environmental stimuli and interact with humans in friendly mannerAt 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+  </div
