    SwarmBot Assemblage

    Video presentation of a 4 day workshop within smart geometry conference at Chalmers University in Gothenbug/Sweden. In this cluster we investigated dynamic construction processes through the interaction of hundreds of swarmbots, leading to novel structures with user-defined qualities. We aim to construct a robot swarm, using a version of the toy “bristlebots” as a hardware platform. The active robots will operate in a large two-dimensional arena filled with differently shaped passive building material, which they can manipulate. We will explore how different structures emerge when the swarmbot population is altered using “embodied encoding”, a way to affect the behavior of the robots through mechanical features. This cluster is enabled by close collaboration of architects, roboticists, and entomologists; with it we seek to explore structures which are emergent outcomes of local interactions.

    Flocking with fixed-wing robots at EPFL

    Uploaded on Sep 26, 2011

    Inexpensive and easy to use MAVs, developed by Severin Leven and Sensefly, are shown here to be able to flock in formations up to ten robots. The project, presented by Sabine Hauert from EPFL's Laboratory of Intelligent Systems, will be shown at the IROS 2011 annual meeting.

    Zooids: Building Blocks for Swarm User Interfaces

    Zooids: Building Blocks for Swarm User Interfaces

    UIST 2016: Proceedings of the 29th Annual ACM Symposium on User Interface Software & Technology

    Abstract:
    This paper introduces swarm user interfaces, a new class of human-computer interfaces comprised of many autonomous robots that handle both display and interaction. We describe the design of Zooids, an open-source open-hardware platform for developing tabletop swarm interfaces. The platform consists of a collection of custom-designed wheeled micro robots each 2.6 cm in diameter, a radio base-station, a high-speed DLP structured light projector for optical tracking, and a software framework for application development and control. \ We illustrate the potential of tabletop swarm user interfaces through a set of application scenarios developed with Zooids, and discuss general design considerations unique to swarm user interfaces.

    Fleets of Drones

    Published on Mar 3, 2017

    From swarm intelligence to highly-choreographed light shows, we take a look at how a collection of drones can behave in interesting and breathtaking ways.
