Abstract

Swarm Robotics is an area of active research interest where groups of robots coordinate and perform collective tasks. Existing ap- proaches to Learning and Collective Decision Making amongst a group of robots is complex. In this paper, we propose a simple model of learn- ing and collective decision making in honey bees engaged in foraging for suitable nectar-sites. Our simple model takes into consideration dis- crete numbers of bees and considers a�ects of noise and randomness. We achieve this by using an algorithm for exact stochastic simulation used in physical chemistry. Using this model, we wish to understand the au- tonomous learning and collective decision making process that a swarm of robots might employ.
