Abstract

A hormone-inspired task scheduling method is described which assigns tasks to a group of robots, taking into account the robotspsila performances. This method draws on previous work using endocrine-based methodologies, and incorporates existing evolutionary robotics methods. In the resulting system, robot performance data, generated as part of evolution, is used to autonomously reassign tasks amongst the group, without the use of a central controller.
