As part of a project to create leader-follower network topologies, a swarm of Khepera III robots deploys spatio-temporal routing algorithms to use the fewest members and travel the minimum possible distance while playing Beethoven's "Fur Elise." (Source: K-Team)
Hi Ann, Great article and video! It's amazing to see this tiny robots worked together for a common goal, in this case to play a piano, with such grace. The electronics packaging for these tiny robot is an engineering feat in itself. I'm wondering what type of processor is used to orchestrate the sensing and mobility controls for these robots. Did Georgia Tech disclose any engineering BOM on these robots?
It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
