Abstract: The autonomous robot formation maintenance problem can be approached by considering local information only. This approach is more realistic than using global information, but presents a troop deformation drawback. This paper performs a step forward in local information usage for formation maintenance by analyzing a parameterization of different basic behaviors. Formation maintenance emerges from the combination of these simple behaviors, and its overall accuracy is empirically optimized by tuning behavior parameters. In particular, we study and characterize three different formations: queue or column (as for ants), inverted V or wedge (as for birds or planes) and rectangle (for manipulus antique roman troop formations). This paper describes simulated robots that incorporate a unique set of basic behaviors from which formation maintenance emerges. These simple behaviors provide formation robustness and are parameterized in order to minimize deformation while following a trajectory.
