This paper in if fact an overview of state of the art in mobile multi-robot systems as an initial part of our research in implementing a system based on swarm robotics concepts to be used in natural disaster search and rescue missions. The system is to be composed of a group of drones that can detect survivor mobile cell signals and exhibit some other features as well. This paper surveys the swarm robotics research landscape to provide a theoretical background to the implementation and help determine the techniques available to create the system. The Particle swarm optimization (PSO) and Glowworm swarm optimization (GSO) algorithms are briefly described and there is also insight into Bird flocking behavior and the model behind it
