    Andreas Steyven (PhD 2013-)
    Exploiting cooperative behaviour to guide open-ended evolution in multi-robot applications. Swarm robotics is a special case within the general field of robotics. The distributed nature makes it more resilient with no single point of failure. Considering the application in remote locations,...
