The aim of the MICROB project is to investigate collective phenomena of organisation in societies of robots. The project relies on the use of a simple testbed, which enables us to conduct experiments that focus on the organisational features of agents. So far, the first instantiation of this project has taken place within the RoboCup and MiroSot competitions of soccer-playing robots, both on simulated and real playing fields. The simulation experiments make use of the RoboCup official simulator, SoccerServer, while the real ones rely on two different types of robots.
The Microb2 project is aiming at building four different teams for RoboCup'98, to be held in Paris in July. 65 students from 5 different laboratories (vision, computer science, AI, Robotics, engineering, etc.) will be working together on the following teams
