This paper proposes a distributed algorithm for circle formation by multiple autonomous mobile robots with limited visibility. Each robot sees up to a fixed distance around it and moves to a new position. Eventually they form a circle of a given radius. The robots do not store past actions. The robots are anonymous and cannot be distinguished by their(More)
This paper proposes a distributed algorithm for circle formation by a system of mobile robots. Each robot observes the positions of other robots and moves to a new position. Eventually they form a circle. The robots do not store past actions. They are anonymous and cannot be distinguished by their appearance and do not have a common coordinate system(More)
We consider the problem of reconfiguration planning in modular robots. Current techniques for reconfiguration planning usually specify the destination configuration for a modular robot explicitly. We posit that in uncertain environments the desirable configuration for a modular robot is not known beforehand and has to be determined dynamically. In this(More)
We consider the configuration formation problem in modular robotic systems where a set of singleton modules that are spatially distributed in an environment are required to assume appropriate positions so that they can configure into a new, user-specified target configuration, while simultaneously maximizing the amount of information collected while(More)
— We consider the problem of configuration formation in modular robot systems where a set of modules that are initially in different configurations and located at different locations are required to assume appropriate positions so that they can get into a new, user-specified, target configuration. We propose a novel algorithm based on graph isomorphism,(More)
