Swarm robotics is the learn of ways huge numbers of fairly basic bodily embodied agentscanbe designedsuchthat a desiredcollectivebehavioremerges from the neighborhood interactions between brokers and among the brokers and the en- ronment. Swarm robotics has emerged as a unique method of the coordination of enormous numbers of robots and is galvanized from remark of social bugs – ants, termites, wasps and bees – which stand as interesting examples of the way numerous basic contributors can engage to create jointly clever platforms. Socialinsects areknownto coordinatetheir actionsto accomplishtasks which are a ways past the functions of a unmarried person: termites construct huge and complicated mounds, military ants manage striking foraging raids, ants can jointly hold huge prey. Such coordination services are nonetheless well past the succeed in of present multi-robot platforms. Researchon swarmroboticshasseen a signi?cantincreasein the final five years. a few winning swarm robot platforms have now been proven within the laboratory and the research of the layout, modelling, implementation and research of swarm robot structures has turn into a scorching subject of study. This workshop was once prepared inside SAB 2006, as a sequel to the profitable ?rst swarmroboticsworkshopin2004,withtheaimofreviewingandupdatingrecent advances at the subject. We acquired 21 complete papers (20 examine + 1 evaluation) and permitted 14 (13 study + 1 review). total, we, as organizers, have been happy with the variety of submissions, and a couple of our reviewers explicitly commented at the quite often top of the range of the papers.
