Abstract
We consider the problem of exploring an unknown environment using a swarm of autonomous robots with collective behavior emerging from their local rules. Each robot has only a very restricted view on the environment which makes cooperation difficult. We introduce a software system which is capable of simulating a large number of such robots (e.g. 1000) on highly complex terrains with millions of obstacles. Its main purpose is to easily integrate and evaluate any kind of algorithm for controlling the robot behavior. The simulation may be observed in real-time via a visualization that displays both the individual and the collective progress of the robots. We present the system design, its main features and underlying concepts.
