Abstract

The term “swarm” has been applied to many systems (in biology, engineering, computation, etc.) as they have some of the qualities that the English-language term “swarm” denotes. With the growth of the various area of “swarm” research, the “swarm” terminology has become somewhat confusing. In this paper, we reflect on this terminology to help clarify its association with various robotic concepts.
