This paper presents the novel use of the Neural-endocrine architecture for swarm robotic systems. We make use of a number of behaviours to give rise to emergent swarm behaviour to allow a swarm of robots to collaborate in the task of foraging. Results show that the architecture is amenable to such a task, with the swarm being able to successfully complete the required task.
