Awareness and Self-Awareness for Multi-Robot Organisms

  title={Awareness and Self-Awareness for Multi-Robot Organisms},
  author={Serge Kernbach},
Awareness and self-awareness are two different notions related to knowing the environment and itself. In a general context, the mechanism of self-awareness belongs to a class of co-called "self-issues" (self-* or self-star): self-adaptation, self-repairing, self-replication, self-development or self-recovery. The self-* issues are connected in many ways to adaptability and evolvability, to the emergence of behavior and to the controllability of long-term developmental processes. Self-* are…

Symbiotic Multi-Robot Organisms - Reliability, Adaptability, Evolution

New concepts for symbiotic robot organisms are introduced and experience of researching and developing such systems is reported on, intended to apply in the construction and maintenance of real-world technical systems based on these concepts.

Robotic Evolutionary Self-Programming and Self-Assembling Organisms

The REPLICATOR project focuses on the development of an advanced robotic system, consisting of a super-large-scale swarm of small autonomous mobile microrobots that are capable of self-assembling into large artificial organisms.

Handbook of Collective Robotics: Fundamentals and Challenges

This book is devoted to mechatronic, chemical, bacteriological, biological, and hybrid systems, utilizing cooperative, networked, swarm, self-organizing, evolutionary and bio-inspired design

Study of Macroscopic Morphological Features of Symbiotic Robotic Organisms

An overview of mechanical development within the ”SYMBRION” and ”REPLICATOR” projects towards swarming-capable and reconfigurable platforms and topological modelling of possible macroscopic organisms built from these modules are given.

Flexible Manufacturing Process Planning based on the Multi-agent Technology

Flexible manufacturing systems working in highly dynamic modern markets requires innovative concepts towards flexible management, production scheduling and planning and a specific software architecture supports this flexibility and enables an adaptive reaction on disturbances often arising in production.
