AI for Good – Collective robotics: Multi-robot coordination in complex environments

AI for Good – Collective robotics: Multi-robot coordination in complex environments

As we witness the shift from individual robots to collectives of robots working together in a shared environment under minimal human supervision. Multiple robots physically collaborating with each other are capable of performing highly versatile tasks, with greater potential to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

The exhibit currently being hosted by the University City Arts League is the culminating project of the Robotics Art Residency at the GRASP Lab at Penn Engineering and the Weitzman School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania. Three artists were chosen for monthlong residencies where they collaborated with Ph.D. students at GRASP to put together robotic art pieces for the show.

On Penn Today – “A robot made of sticks”

On Penn Today – “A robot made of sticks”

In late summer, just as the leaves were starting to crisp and curl in the heat, Devin Carroll walked out of his apartment, looked on the ground, and picked up a couple of sticks that he thought might work for his robot. About half an inch thick and the length of an adult hand, he stripped the three sticks of their bark and lashed them with string to StickBot, a modular robot composed of circuitry, actuators, a microcontroller, and a motor driver.

Members of the Miskin Lab research team are harnessing new nanofabrication techniques to create robots that can operate on the same scale as cells and could therefore be used to interact with biology on a cellular level. @ESEatPenn https://bit.ly/3ZVsUoc
