Abstract: Life is precious and should be extended by whatever means that are possible. It is to this end that the Swarming Robot project had been undertaken. As its name indicates, the sole purpose of the swarming robot is to model the collective behaviour of a colony of ants and acquire the ability to perform collision avoidance. The swarming robots colony comprises of multi-agents working together to solve complex tasks. The multi-agent platform boasts five working robots (male working ants) and a superior robot (queen ant) whose possess a “unique” ability when compared with the other four robots. This is a continuation project on the Swarming Robot, which was undertaken in the year 2007. The chief objective of this project is to continue to explore the building platform testbed of robots which are small and scalable. The robots should also be simple, affordable, easy to replicate and deploy. The other objective is to implement and demonstrate three swarming algorithms, the light algorithm, follow-the-leader algorithm and pursuer evader algorithm, which models swarming behaviour. Furthermore, these report details improvements that had to be done what had been done to achieve the final, working product.
