Robotic Evolutionary Self-Programming and Self-Assembling Organisms

Objective

Super-large-scale swarm of small autonomous mobile micro-robots
The REPLICATOR project focuses on the development of an advanced robotic system, consisting of a super-large-scale swarm of small autonomous mobile micro-robots that are capable of self-assembling into large artificial organisms. These robotic organisms possess common energy and information buses as well as reliable legged, wheeled or climbing locomotion, based on modular sub-systems which can be autonomously reconfigured. They will be used to build autonomous sensor networks, capable of self-spreading and self-maintaining in open-ended and hazardous environments.
