  • Self-reconfiguring modular robots have the ability to reform themselves into a wide variety of different shapes to accomplish their tasks. In addition, a group of self-reconfiguring modules can divide up into several smaller groups to perform operations (such as exploration) in parallel. In either instance, due to the large number of independent modules in the system, distributed algorithms are highly desirable. In this paper, we describe a set of homogeneous distributed algorithms for self… CONTINUE READING
