By using a custom-made swarm of robots with high-processing power embedded within the swarm, the Bristol team were able to discover which rules give rise to desired swarm behaviours.

Lead author, Simon Jones, from the University of Bristol’s Robotics Lab said: “Human-understandable controllers allow us to analyse and verify automatic designs, to ensure safety for deployment in real-world applications.” Co-led by Dr Sabine Hauert, the engineers took advantage of the recent advances in high performance mobile computing, to build a swarm of robots inspired by those in nature.

“The next step will be to get these robot swarms out of the lab and demonstrate our proposed approach in real-world applications.” By freeing the swarm of external infrastructure, and by showing that it is possible to analyse, understand and explain the generated controllers, the researchers will move towards the automatic design of swarm controllers in real-world applications.

In the future, starting from scratch, a robot swarm could discover a suitable strategy directly in situ, and change the strategy when the swarm task, or environment changes.
