Modularity in Small Distributed Robots

  title={Modularity in Small Distributed Robots},
  author={Robert Grabowski and Pradeep K. Khosla},
This paper describes the development of small mobile robots for collaborative surveillance tasks. Each of the robots, called Millibots, has only limited sensing, computation, and communication capabilities. However, by collaborating with other robots, they can still perform useful tasks. The task that we are considering is collaborative mapping and exploration inside buildings. To guarantee accessibility through narrow passageways (e.g. air ducts), the robots are very small, approximately… CONTINUE READING
