Optimization through Coupling Learning Capability and Imitation Strategy in a Multi-Robot System
In this paper, we present the interest of coupling learning capability and imitation strategy on individual and population levels in the field of Multi-Robot System. Particularly, we show that in an unknown environment adding a simple imitation capability to our bio-inspired architecture leads to a positive effect in the improvement the overall performance of the whole system.

Fuzzy Counter-Ant for Avoiding the Stagnation of Multirobot Exploration
Since swarm intelligence allows self-organization into an unfamiliar environment and adapting behaviors through simple individuals' interactions, we propose to realize a swarm multirobot organization with a fuzzy control. We introduce in this paper a fuzzy system for avoiding the collaboration stagnation and to improve the counter-ant algorithm (CAA). [...]
Emergent Complex Behaviors for Swarm robotic Systems by Local Rules
This paper describes a clustering process taking inspiration from the cemetery organization of ants. The goal of this paper is to show the importance of the local interactions which allow to produces complex and emergent behaviors in the field of swarm robotics. [...]
