Projects

microUSV Swarm

A swarm of Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) for marine swarm robotics research.

Object Sorting and Clustering

Swarms of simple robots can cluster objects together and sort them by type.

Orbital Construction

Orbital construction drives a swarm of simple robots to push objects into a desired shape.

Pattern Formation

Robots form into patterns while moving for surveying or modifying terrain.

Robot Aggregation

Aggregation is a useful building-block behaviour for swarms of simple robots.

Theoretical Analysis

Computational and parameterized complexity analysis of several problems in swarm robotics.

Visual Homing

Visual homing is the ability to return to a place by comparing the current image with the goal image.
