From Local to Global Behavior in Intelligent Self-Assembly

  title={From Local to Global Behavior in Intelligent Self-Assembly},
  author={Chris Jones and Maja J. Mataric},
In this paper we present a method by which to organize the interactions of autonomous assembly agents in Intelligent Self-Assembly (ISA). Each assembly agent has limited and local sensing and local rule-based control. A Transition Rule Set (TRS) Compiler is presented which takes a desired goal structure as input and gives as output a set of rules. When each assembly agent utilizes these rules, the desired goal structure is assembled. We show that the TRS Compiler is scalable, efficient, and is… CONTINUE READING
