I would just leave this definition as "A process where a set of robotic agents are specifically coordinated to work in tandem to accomplish a task". The second part of the definition is debatable as @RadiancePanther and @BlissTiger say. A cooperation will not necessarily be a _productive_ or a _succesful_ one. - Peaceful Panda 2023.04.18

The definition includes this because that is core to the definition of the term. - Radiance Panther 2023.04.12

Why does the definition include that the task would not have been possible if the human or the robot were working alone or in parallel? Collaboration is just defined as two agents working together to solve a task, no? A collaboration may ultimately be worse than working alone. - Bliss Tiger 2023.04.12
