Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this, final chapter the research is concluded. The two main parts of the research, answering Primary Research Question One and Two respectively, are discussed first. All results of the first part jointly shaped the theoretical basis for the Swarm Planning Framework, which is applied to several pilot designs in the second part. These designs are tested against the criteria as formulated in the introductory chapter. This concluding chapter ends with reflections on the research and recommendations.
