Robot boats of US Navy

Robot boats of US Navy

In a sign that all warfare is becoming more and more taken over by robots and autonomous vehicles, the US Navy just demonstrated that it can accompany its ships with autonomous vehicles. These robot boats, would protect the main ship, which is of high value and containing soldiers. It would also swarm an enemy boat, […]

Handling information for military robot swarms

Handling information for military robot swarms

As the use of robots in battlefields grows continuously, the problem of managing an ever growing quantity of information becomes more and more critical. In order to use the resources efficiently, the goal is to enable a single soldier to manage more and more robots and robotic vehicles at the same time. Currently it looks […]

Robots change formation efficiently

Robots change formation efficiently

An algorithm for controlling multiple robots designed in Georgia Tech University allows robots to move in right formation in the most efficient way for a given goal. The robots are instructed to spell a word, and starting with a random configuration, they efficiently change their relative positions so that they spell each letter of the word, […]

Swarm Robotics Control Simplified

Using Microsoft Surface software, which can be described as an interactive tabletop, a system to control swarm robots has been developed at MIT. Getting data from various resources, processing them and finally organizing the movements and outputs of swarm robot systems is the main challenge when desiging a robotic system based on a large number […]

Swarm robotics: Reducing costs

A new concept of manufacturing mini robots has been presented at the University of Southampton in United Kingdom. The research team demonstrated the use of cell phone technology to manufacture robots. The motors that are used to vibrate cell phones are used to power these robots. The motors are then attached to circuit boards, eliminating […]
