Abstract : The last progress in the pervasive computing field has led to the distribution of knowledge and computational power in the environment, rather than condensing it in a single, powerful entity. This allows agents to behave like insects in a swarm, that can fulfil a task communicating directly or indirectly among them. Following this vision of Ambient Intelligence, our work proposes a straightforward solution to coordinate a swarm of robots that have low computational capabilities. All the information and instructions are found in RFID tags that are used as a pervasive memory distributed in the environment. These robots exploit ubiquitous computing to make a formation in space, synchronise with team mates in the same zone, and finally complete a cooperative task. Before implementing the solution in a real scenario, we show the validation of our algorithm in a simulation environment.
