Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

By Jason Maderer | May 16, 2017 @ 06:12 | Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created a team of free-flying Swarming robots that obeys the two rules of the air: don’t collide or undercut each other. They’ve also built autonomous blimps that recognize hand gestures and detect faces. In the first, five swarm quadcopters zip […]

Team of Robots Learns to Work Together, Without Colliding

Team of Robots Learns to Work Together, Without Colliding

Sep 8, 2016 @ 02:10 | By Jason Maderer | maderer@gatech.edu With this new algorithm, the robots are using a set of safe states and barrier certificates to ensure each stays in its own safe set throughout the entire maneuver. When roboticists create behaviors for teams of robots, they first build algorithms that focus on the intended […]

Swimming Modular Robots for Underwater Search and Rescue Missions

May 17, 2016 @ 22:23 |  Researchers at the University of Sheffield have created a set of swimming modular robots which could be used during underwater search and rescue operations. The researchers are presenting their research work and findings in this week at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2016) – the world’s largest […]

Artificial Evolution allows Better Self-Organized Task in Robot Swarm

Artificial Evolution allows Better Self-Organized Task in Robot Swarm

7 August 2015 – Swarm robotics deals with the control of large groups of relatively simple robots so that they perform tasks that go beyond their individual capabilities. Many biological systems execute tasks by dividing them into finer sub-tasks first, may be you have seen Ants working together in a large scale to achieve a […]
