Two algorithms for area coverage (for use in space applications) were evaluated using a simulator and then tested on a multi-robot society consisting of LEGO Mindstorms robots. The two algorithms are (i) a vector force based implementation and (ii) a machine learning approach. The second is based on an organizational-learning oriented classifier system (OCS) introduced by Takadama in 1998.
