Self-assembly of modular robots from finite number of modules using graph grammars

Vijeth Rai, Anne van Rossum, Nikolaus Correll
2011 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
We propose a suite of algorithms that (1) generate a reversible graph grammar, i.e., generates rules for a desired structure that allow the structure not only to assemble, but also to disassemble, and  ...  We show that by omitting a reversal rule for the last attached module, self-assembly eventually completes, and that communication can drastically speed up this process.  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Anne van Rossum for his constant support and assistance. I would also like to thank my advisor Prof. Nikolaus Correll for his guidance and patience.  ...

Active Exploitation of Redundancies in Reconfigurable Multi-Robot Systems [article]

Thomas M. Roehr
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To support this active exploitation of redundancies in robotic systems, this paper details an organization model as basis for planning with reconfigurable multi-robot systems.  ...  While traditional robotic systems come with a monolithic system design, reconfigurable multi-robot systems can share and shift physical resources in an on-demand fashion.  ...  Instead of enforcing distributed control approaches at all system levels, centralized control approaches for locally autonomous and self-sustained operation of agents are permitted and feasible.  ...
