Abstract : In a world that is giving prominence to ubiquitous computing, a classical standalone robot, though as complex, specialised and efficient as it may be, is not suitable for a distributed environment. The aim is to have knowledge and computing power diffused in the environment, exploiting the collaboration of simple, flexible and cost-effective robots. Collective intelligence increases when each one communicates basic information about its local state, to update the global knowledge. An open research problem is the cooperation among multiple entities in a distributed environment. Our proposal is to have robots with low capabilities that can learn information and instructions from on-site RFID landmarks to place themselves in formation, synchronise with other robots in the area, and finally carry out a cooperative task.
