A Physical Implementation of the Self-Reconfiguring Crystalline Robot
We discuss a physical implementation of the Crystalline robot system. Crystalline robots consist of modules that can aggregate together to form distributed robot systems. Crystalline modules are actuated by expanding and contracting each unit. This actuation mechanism permits automated shape metamorphosis. We describe the Crystalline module concept and a physical implementation of a robot system with ten units. We describe experiments with this robot.
