A biologically-inspired approach is proposed for the coordination of a vast number of "cellular actuators." Each cellular actuator has a decision-making unit that changes the transition probability depending on the broadcasted control signal from a centralized feedback controller. Although there is no deterministic coordination among the vast number of cellular actuator, the sum of the displacements of the cellular actuators can track a desired trajectory. We propose a design of transitiondoi:10.1109/biorob.2006.1639098 fatcat:t7vkirq5lrbr3fzllywyb2aqde
