HeRo 2.0: A Low-Cost Robot for Swarm Robotics Research

  title={HeRo 2.0: A Low-Cost Robot for Swarm Robotics Research},
  author={Paulo A. F. Rezeck and H{\'e}ctor Azp{\'u}rua and Maur{\'i}cio F. S. Corr{\^e}a and Luiz Chaimowicz},
The current state of electronic component miniaturization coupled with the increasing efficiency in hardware and software allow the development of smaller and compact robotic systems. The convenience of using these small, simple, yet capable robots has gathered the research community’s attention towards practical applications of swarm robotics. This paper presents the design of a novel platform for swarm robotics applications that is low cost, easy to assemble using off-the-shelf components… 
Chemistry-Inspired Pattern Formation with Robotic Swarms
This work presents a novel stochastic approach that allows a swarm of heterogeneous robots to create emergent patterns in a completely decentralized fashion and relying only on local information.


WsBot: A Tiny, Low-Cost Swarm Robot for Experimentation on Industry 4.0
The WsBot is a tiny differential robot, ROS-based, capable of executing its behavior and connects with other agents through Wi-Fi, which allows this robot to serve as a bridge so that researches, that until then were restricted to the theoretical and academic environment can effectively bring real contributions to smart factories.
