    A Common Coordinates/Heading Direction Generation Method for a Robot Swarm with Only RSSI-Based Ranging

    In the motion control of a microrobot swarm, a key issue is how to autonomously generate a set of common coordinates among all robots and how to notify each robot of its heading direction in the generated comm...
