Abstract : Cooperation between robots, or many robots, remains a challenge from a robotic and computer science point of view. When the number of robots increases the complexity of the control grows, as the risk/chance to have emergent global behaviors. Dealing with multi-robot systems raises several challenges when considering real deployment and use. In this presentation we will focus on the challenge of controlling large scale robotics systems, dealing with the following questions (i) how to identify, program and control complex behaviors in swarm of robots, (ii) how human operators can intereact and control such autonomous systems, and (iii) what are the needs today in software development to deploy and monitor multi-robot systems or network of robots. These questions will be illustrated on several robotics platforms used in different recent projects such as the French Robotics Challenge " Carotte ".
