It describes a system in which a large swarm of robots moves pieces of "ruin piles" to "free space" communicating - inspired by the workings of an ant colony - by "feromones" which guide the robots to the piles and which decide the probability of a certain robot being assigned to a specific pile.<br>

-
 
+
-
Strongly related<br>
+
-
Doesn't seem to consider more than one robot moving the same object so still have to do that ourselves <br>

-
works much better for very large swarms<br>

|Uses the "blackboard" approach to pheromones which is interesting since we probably don't want to use s physical pheromone, but a pheromone approach does seem to be highly applicable to our case<br>
