The open-source software Player/Stage is widely used as a simulation tool for swarm robot systems. The installment and configuration of the Player/Stage platform are introduced firstly. After making sure the proper configuration of the simulation software by running sample script, four typical research scenarios of swarm robot are simulated on it, including Leader-Follower algorithm based swarm robot formation control scenario, distribution algorithm based swarm robot task allocation scenario, robot obstacle avoidance scenario and swarm robot scatter scenario. Simulation results show that various swarm robot scenarios can be realized on the Player/Stage and it is an efficient and economic open source simulation software platform for the research of swarm robot.
