A common behavior in animals and human beings is deception. Deceptive behavior in robotics is potentially beneficial in several domains ranging from the military to a more everyday context. In our research, novel algorithms were developed for the deceptive behavior of a robot, inspired by the observed deceptive behavior of squirrels for cache protection strategies, then evaluating the results via simulation studies. In this paper, we present this bio-inspired algorithm for robot deception and observe whether the algorithm is truly applicable in actual robot systems.
