Considering the befitting potential of swarms in industry, following are a few questions that we focus on at the Research Days 2022.
- What are the requirements for swarms in industry?
- How does industry benefit from swarm characteristics, such as adaptivity, robustness and scalability?
- How to model a production plant as a swarm with interacting agents?
- How and where can classical optimization and swarm intelligence enrich each other?
- Which communication technologies can be used for explicit and implicit CPS swarm communication?
- How important is connectivity for swarming?
- What are the potential research challenges that need to be addressed to use swarms in industry related to autonomy?
