Robotic swarm systems represent an appropriate concept for large scale and volatile problems. Instead of determining complete solutions in a composite configuration space biological-inspired computing approaches apply simple rule mechanics in a decentralised fashion creating an emergent global behaviour of a system. Because of the evolutionary character of these algorithms it is difficult to plan the system behaviour in advance. This work presents a novel concept to plan and control multi-robot systems with biologically inspired mechanisms in a more accessible and intuitive fashion.
