Search and Rescue using Swarm Robots Complex Systems Seminar

  title={Search and Rescue using Swarm Robots Complex Systems Seminar},
  author={M. Rahmani},
Nowadays mobile robots are being used in various fields of academic research as well as real applications. Semiautonomous space exploration and underwater exploration are two applications of mobile robots. They are also being used in rescue process e.g. in semi-destroyed buildings after a disaster that is unsafe for human to enter and try to find and rescue victims. These robots should be highly robust and flexible. Two main approaches to construct this kind of systems are collective robotics…

Swarm-Bot: A New Distributed Robotic Concept
A new robotic concept called swarm-bot is introduced in which the collective interaction exploited by the swarm intelligence mechanism goes beyond the control layer and is extended to the physical level, which implies the addition of new mechanical functionalities on the single robot, together with new electronics and software to manage it.
Design of the ATRON lattice-based self-reconfigurable robot
In this survey, design considerations leading to a novel design for a self-reconfigurable robot, called “ATRON”, is described and it is concluded that the ATRON design is both competent and novel.
Evolution of PolyBot: A Modular Reconfigurable Robot
PolyBot is the first robot to demonstrate sequentially two topologically distinct locomotion modes by self-reconfiguration, and as the design evolves the issues of low cost and robustness are being addressed while exploring the potential of modular, selfreconfigurable robots.
Self-reconfigurable modular robot - experiments on reconfiguration and locomotion
Details of the mechanical and electrical designs of the developed module and its control system architecture are presented, which are capable of not only building a static structure, but also generating a dynamic robotic motion.

Phase automata: a programming model of locomotion gaits for scalable chain-type modular robots
This paper presents a formal model for programming locomotion gaits in chain-type modular robots: phase automata, a compact representation of locomotion Gaits capable of being embedded and distributed across modules.
Mars Pathfinder Microrover, a Small, Low-Cost, Low-Power Spacecraft
An overview of the design of the Mars Pathfinder Microrover is provided with an emphasis on how its integrated design enables it to perform all of the functions normally associated with entire spacecraft.
