In the studies done to date on the swarm behaviors of living creatures, many different observational techniques have been developed, indicating the importance of such detailed observations. The techniques of researchers aiming to capture the fact of the visually unobservable swarm behaviors of a variety of living creatures have included putting microsensors on the bodies of honey bees or ants, and putting data loggers (micro recorders) on those of birds or mammals. Such techniques, also called bio-logging, can go far in clarifying why we feel living creatures that exhibit swarm behaviors should have some intelligence as a swarm (swarm intelligence). Furthermore, the studies on swarm behaviors of living creatures can provide important knowledge to the studies on swarm robotics in the field of robotics. It is in this context that this special issue invites as many papers as possible on the biologging technologies and collective behaviors mainly for living creatures as well as various advanced measurement technologies related to them in hopes of contributing to further advancements in the biologging and swarm robotics fields.
