Specifications and GoalsBuild a swarm of semi intelligent robots The swarm robots should achieve the following things:

  • Ability to communicate amongst each other and w/ a computer of choice
  • Distributed vs Centralized (Ender Wiggin vs Bugger Queen)
  • Low Cost for reproducibility
  • Possibly of different types and specs. Or all the same. For example: ** Feelers. Collision detection. Used to map out the area.
  • Movers. Extra actuators… Possibly using electromagnets to move metallic objects around
  • Philosophers. Computation nodes, can also move.
