-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
