The article gives a wake up call on the need of an organized effort in robotics education. A brief overview of the special issue of the International Journal of Engineering Education, which offered some insight into the current trends in robotics education, is given. A range of robotics programs that can be offered at the bachelor's degree level and how(More)
In this paper we present the networked robotics approach to dynamic architecture creation. Building on our prior work we highlight the ease at which system and architecture creation can be moved from the single robot domain to the cooperative/multiple robotic domain; indeed under the networked robotic framework there are no differences between the two, as a(More)
This paper reports on the development of an online environment supporting a network-based robotics educational project. The project was undertaken by a large body of students and involved adding a level of intelligence to control a toy device that was accessible remotely over the network. The students were to design and implement a stop-look-act control(More)
Preamble Physical reality is all the reality we have, and so physical theory in the standard sense is all the ontology we need. This, at least, was an assumption taken almost universally for granted by the advocates of exact philosophy for much of the present century. Every event, it was held, is a physical event, and all structure in reality is physical(More)
—The work reported in this paper is motivated by the need for developing swarm pattern transformation methodologies. Two methods, namely a macroscopic method and a mathematical method are investigated for pattern transformation. The first method is based on macroscopic parameters while the second method is based on both microscopic and macroscopic(More)
