The research progress of swarm robotics is reviewed in details. The swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multi-robotic systems which isinspired from natureandis a combination of swarm intelligence and robotics, which shows cooperation of nature swarm and swarm intelligence and describes the modelling methods of swarm robotics, followed by a list of several widely used swarm robotics entity projects and simulation platforms. In this paper, classification of existing researches, problems and algorithms aroused in the study of swarm robotics are presented including cooperative control mechanisms in swarm robotics for flocking, navigating and searching applications.

Keywords: Cooperative control, Modelling, Simulation, Swarm robotics applications.
