Investigating how robotic teams accomplish high level objectives and respond to environmental changes.
Verification of Emergent Behavior
Experimental verification of swarm behaviors is challenging, one way to address this is to use mixed reality. Existing theoretical work proposes robot formations emerge from time delay between inter robot communication. Our results using the Crazyflie platform demonstrate the existence of theoretically predicted emergent behaviors
Calibrated Mixed Reality
Mixed reality allows for the combination of robots and simulated agents to improve scalability. To improve the fidelity of these experiments data driven models are used to match performance.
