My group

Swarm & Computational Intelligence Lab (SwaCIL)

SwaCIL was formed in 2019 with the main focus on Swarm Robotics and its applications in real-world scenarios. We work on bio-inspired swarm scenarios (aggregation, flocking, foraging etc) and model them with our simulation software and real micro-robots. The target applications are in Agriculture, Extreme Environment, and Cleaning.
