The goal of this project is the study of a novel design approach to hardware implementation for testing and using the capability of self-assembling, self-organising, and metamorphosis of robotic systems. Such an approach finds its theoretical roots on recent studies in swarm intelligence, i.e., in studies of self-organising and self-assembling capabilities shown by social animals.
ProjectsThis activity was supported in the past by the swarm-bot and the swarmanoid projects. It is now carried out within the ASCENS and H2Swarm projects
This project resulted in several papers, availables below.
A demonstration of some results in a concrete application is the following:
