Swarm robotics is a pretty new field in scientific research, yet it has great potential. It revolves around the development of multi-robot teams with the ability to move and carry out tasks collectively. Robot swarms have extremely valuable applications such as providing support to humans during search and rescue operations or facilitate monitoring of geographical areas that are hard for humans to reach.
A recent development might be able to further advance this field as a research team has devised a theoretical construct that could potentially guide the growth of self-organizing human swarm technology. The new creation is no less than a breakthrough in the Swarm Intelligence Market as it brings forth a completely new perspective about human-swarm interactions.
The team stated that their primary focus was on the subfield of robotics that explores human swarms. Till now, there is no universal understanding of the ways to design next-generation human-swarm interactions. Thus, in the present research, the goal was to give the research community a theoretical base on isolated incidents related to human-swarm technology.
The researchers stated that whenever teams want to design “loops” for the technology for performing appropriately in real-world settings, they should consider the interaction as a whole. For example, specifying the way humans signal their intent to a robot swarm is not complete, and techniques should also take to point the way root swarms would bring back feedback to human users.
The experiments of the team after a time led them to a bio-inspired metaphor for design. The design proposes that the swarm would self-organize in a way that could work as human body parts. Their hypothesis suggests that their view might be a positive metaphor for developing human-swarm loops with the ability to deal in real-time.
In instances wherein a robot swarm is acting as an extension of humans, the new design metaphor could help in navigating the intricate design space of human-swarm interactions. Thus, resulting in an advanced human-swarm system that is efficacious and could be applicable for more sophisticated scenarios.
In order to design these robots, neural logic needs to be integrated into them on the network level; however, it has received a very limited spotlight so far. Through the present research, the team proposed some new and innovative ideas on the way in which robot swarms could be looked at as neural systems. In the coming future, the theoretical approach surmised in the study could be of great benefit for the advancement of new systems. This is because it could facilitate efficacious interactions between the swarms of robots and humans.
