Applied Stigmergy: Swarms of Autonomous Aerial Vehicles

Two reports on aerial applied stigmergy which prima facie seems more successful than most of the land-based modeling initiatives I’ve seen. (Report 1) (Report 2). (1) [t]he first actual experimentation of flying two autonomous swarms of UAVs against one another with no human control, other than sending high level commands or sending a message to engage.…
