We present a swarm-based framework for designing and implementing morphogenetic artifacts that can grow, self-organize and self-repair in a fully decentralized manner. Artifacts are realized as swarms of multiple types of very simple, kinetically interacting particles with no elaborate sensing, computation, or communication capabilities. The proposed… (More)
