Abstract
This thesis is focused on the use of naturally occurring concept of “swarm intelligence” to multiagentcsystems, namely the relatively new system-theoretic framework known as Swarm Intelligence Systems (SIS). In this work, outlined is the general framework of an interacting agents behaving as a swarm group on a mission to deliver a service such as transporting a set of goods from a given starting point to a destination. As an example, one could think of a team of drones, for instance, providing a delivery service in a milieu where normal transportation mode may be prohibitively expensive. The entire logistic, in detail as a commercial project, is too involved for our thesis focus; instead, some of the structural interaction issues with a group are outlined and discussed here to articulate the behavior of multi-agent based swarm as a group necessary to function as a distributed entity somewhat different from the standard swarm models found in literature.
