The adaptiveness of an autonomous multi-robot system is reduced if the circumstances an agent should take into account to make a decision concerning individual or collective behaviour are defined by a set of a priory assumptions. Based on this premise, this research work illustrates an alternative approach to the design of controllers for self- assembling robots in which the self-assembly is initiated and regulated by perceptual cues that are brought forth by the physical robots through their dynamical interactions.
