Smarticles: Robots built from smaller robots work together

Researchers from Georgia Tech and Northwestern University are taking a different approach to building robots by using smart active particles or “smarticles.” The smarticles worth together inside an enclosed ring to form a supersmarticle. The concept of building robots from smaller robots could provide more flexibility in the design process and lead to simpler controls based on mechanical interaction.
