The CotsBots are inexpensive and modular mobile robots built entirely from commercial off-the-shelf components. These robots provide a convenient platform on which to investigate algorithms, cooperation, and distributed sensing in large (> 50) robot networks. Each robot is small (13cm x 6.5cm base) and costs under $200. Each is equipped with on-board(More)
— The first MEMS process integrating soft elas-tomers in a standard silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafer without assembly has been demonstrated for use in microrobotic mechanisms. This process allows silicon and poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) features to be defined in-plane with feature sizes down to 2 µm. Test structures have been used to characterize the(More)
