RoboCast: Asynchronous Communication in Robot Networks

Ongoing Research

Zohir Bouzid, Shlomi Dolev, Maria Potop-Butucaru, Sébastien Tixeuil OPODIS 2010: 16-31 http://arxiv.org/abs/1006.5877 Swarm robotics is a relevant case study for collective adaptive systems. In this paper a communication abstraction is introduced, in order to model the asynchronously exchange of information
