Abstract: Swarming in nature serves as an "existence of proof" that an artificial swarm, such as a cooperative multi-agent robotic system, can achieve collective and desired outcomes. Such outcomes are intriguing patterns illustrated by organisms in a biological swarm. These emergent patterns from natural swarming are stimulating new directions of research in the control of multi-agent robotic systems. The inculcation of swarming principles in motion planning of robots is currently an active area of research as it satisfies stringent time, manpower, monetary demands and enhances performance and robustness. In this thesis, we consider the motion planning of robots focusing on the well-known find-path problem.
