EXAMPLE

E.g. the term after 3110 is obtained by saying "one 3, two 1's, one 0", which gives 132110.

MATHEMATICA

A001155[1] := 0; A001155[n_] := A001155[n] = FromDigits[Flatten[{Length[#], First[#]}&/@Split[IntegerDigits[A001155[n-1]]]]]; Map[A001155, Range[15]] (* Peter J. C. Moses, Mar 21 2013 *)

PROG

(PARI) A001155(n, a=0)={ while(n--, my(c=1); for(j=2, #a=Vec(Str(a)), if( a[j-1]==a[j], a[j-1]=""; c++, a[j-1]=Str(c, a[j-1]); c=1)); a[#a]=Str(c, a[#a]); a=concat(a)); a }  \\ - M. F. Hasler, Jun 30 2011
