Swarm intelligence is best example of natural phenomenon giving of team work. Here the focus is on use of swarm intelligence to form the communication between automated robots for better and reliable results. With the main aim of exploring the concept for the progressive development of swarm robotics in an engineering field and solve the complex real time applications by setting a communication among automated robots. Currently, Swarm robotics is one of the most important application areas for swarm intelligence. Swarming behaviors of groups of organisms is called as swarm intelligence. There are many advantages of swarm intelligence like, good performance, high reliability, low cost with less complexity. Swarm robotics is the group of robots which are self-assembled and self-communicating to solve such task, which are difficult to solve individually by a single robot. Swarm robots are designed in such a way that they can self-configure and dynamically change their structure to meet environmental conditions. Section 1 will give the detail introduction of research work carried out. While coming consecutive sections will explain literature review, complete implemented system, result and references used.
