Abstract: This paper proposes a distributed algorithm by which a collection of mobile robots roaming on a plane move to form a circle. The algorithm operates under the premises that robots (1) are unable to recall past actions and observations (i.e., oblivious), (2) cannot be distinguished from each others (i.e., anonymous), (3) share no common sense of direction, and (4) are unable to communicate in any other ways than by observing each others position.
