Collective movement of mobile robots is the problem of how to control a group of robots making them move as a group, in a cohesive way, towards a common direction. Collective movement serves not only to move a group of robots from one point to another, but to perform more complex tasks such as using the group of robots as a moving sensor array, collective mapping and searching tasks. In this article, a survey of collective movement of mobile robots is done, including a classification and
