Swarm Robots - My Implementation
Inspired by the work of Professor Magnus Egerstedt I decided I wanted to begin one of my most ambitious projects yet - a decentralized robot swarm. After a month of hard work, I created one of the robots in the swarm, ("Robot 1", above) and decided to model the rest in a software simulation.
Taking baby steps, my first attempt was with a camera mounted to the ceiling in my room with each robot having color based orientation trackers on them. This first test was a proof of concept of a centralized robot swarm. With this setup, I was able to establish "Robot 1," as the leader and make it track an object with the simulated robots following it.
