Swarmanoid project – robots work like swarmed insects

By Damir Beciri
19 October 2009

swarmanoidWe already wrote about modular and shape-shifting robots in our previous articles. Swarm robotics is inspired by the social insect behavior, and emphasizes aspects such as decentralization of control, limited communication abilities among robots, use of local information, emergence of global actions, and robustness. Most current studies in swarm robotic systems have focused on robotic… »


Modular robots – Festo Molecubes

By Damir Beciri

Cell division and modularization are the two mutually opposed aspects of reproduction in living systems. Researchers around the world are trying to make a modular robot that can change… »
