  abstract =     "We propose a simple yet efficient way of coordinating
                 multiple homogeneous robots in the exploration of
                 unknown environments. A guided probabilistic
                 exploration of an unknown environment is achieved via
                 combining random movement with pheromone-based
                 stigmergic guidance. The emergent strategy is shown to
                 provide a scalable solution to multi-robot coordination
                 for the area exploration task, with a faster than
                 linear speed-up with the addition of new robots. We use
                 an approach to evaluating the desired exploration
                 behaviour that emphasizes surveying rather than
                 scanning the environment. We analyse the emergent
                 exploration strategies and demonstrate their
                 effectiveness in higher complexity environments.",
