Abstract

Swarm Intelligence is the emergent collective intelligence of groups of simple agents acting almost independently. Algorithms following this paradigm have many desirable properties: flexibility, decentralized control, robustness, and fault tolerance. This paper presents a novel agent coordination model inspired by the way ants collectively transport large preys. In our model a swarm of agents, each having a different destination to reach, moves with no centralized control in the direction indicated by the majority of agents keeping its initial shape. The model is used to build an algorithm for the problems of image alignment and image matching. The novelty of the approach and its effectiveness are discussed.
