Final Report - SWARMITFIX (Self reconfigurable intelligent swarm fixtures)

Project ID: 214678
Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the SWARMITFIX project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). SWARMITFIX sought to develop the new concept of self-adaptable swarm fixtures composed of mobile agents that can freely move on a bench and reposition below the supported part behaving as a swarm, all without moving / removing the part from the fixture. SWARMITFIX combines the flexibility given by mobile robotics, adaptability of smart materials and the intelligence of a swarm-like behaviour. The report starts with a summary providing a general overview of the project and goes on further explaining the project specific objectives as well as the new fixture concept, architecture and mechanism. The report also presents analytically the results achieved which have bigger possibility of being exploited. Finally, the report covers an overview of the potential impact and the expected potential impact according to each attained objective as well as the dissemination activities.
