Two articles at the ANTS 2018 conference

We just published two papers in the Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Swarm Intelligence (ANTS 2018) which will be held in Rome on October 29th-31st, 2018.

The paper Quality-sensitive foraging by a robot swarm through virtual pheromone trails by Anna Font Llenas, M. Salah Talamali, Xu Xu, James Marshall, and Andreagiovanni Reina showcases the functioning of ARK, our new super-cool infrastructure of Augmented Reality for Kilobots.

The paper Simulating Kilobots within ARGoS: models and experimental validation by Carlo Pinciroli, M. Salah Talamali, Andreagiovanni Reina, James Marshall, and Vito Trianni proposes a new plugin for the ARGoS simulator that allows users to simulate Kilobots in a fast and realistic way, to use the same code in simulation and on robots, and to simulate the ARK infrastructure along with the Kilobots.
