This paper describes the use of networked control algorithms in designing a robotic swarm. The main goal of a robotic swarm is to divide one task into multiple simpler tasks. Have we designed a swarm this way, the main challenge would be the problem of delay in communication between individual robots. This paper also goes through the Swarm Intelligence concept and proposes the Network Formation Control algorithms to control a group of robots.
