Hormone-inspired adaptive communication and distributed control for CONRO self-reconfigurable robots

  title={Hormone-inspired adaptive communication and distributed control for CONRO self-reconfigurable robots},
  author={Wei-Min Shen and Behnam Salemi and Peter M. Will},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Robotics and Automation},
This paper presents a biologically inspired approach to two basic problems in modular self-reconfigurable robots: adaptive communication in self-reconfigurable and dynamic networks, and distributed collaboration between the physically coupled modules to accomplish global effects such as locomotion and reconfiguration. Inspired by the biological concept of hormone, the paper develops the adaptive communication (AC) protocol that enables modules continuously to discover changes in their local… CONTINUE READING
