Works on Self Reconfigurable Robots

Hi all

A professor from Heriot-Watt University has been very active in discussing and researching Self Configurable Robots.
He is actually a customer of Robosavvy and yesterday he sent us some very nice samples of the kind of work he's doing on this area.

Here's the transcript:
Please find a link to a self-reconfigurable robot

http://unit.aist.go.jp/is/frrg/dsysd/mtran3/index.htm

and my theoretical work on disassembly-free reconfigurable robot

http://www.eps.hw.ac.uk/~xk5/Reconfigur ... t_Kong.ppt

You may see the animation by clicking on the figures in colour.

This underline idea of my research is to use the same set of actuators to carry out different tasks in different modes.
To carry out the above tasks, one usually needs six actuators instead of three used here. In addition, the control is also simplified.
The above example may not be practical and is just used to give you a rough idea about this classes of reconfigurable robots.

Reconfigurable robots may adapt to changing environment and can be switch-over in a short time. I served as the Programme Chair
of the International Conference on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots in June, which was a great success. Such topic are receiving attention from researchers around the world.

Regarding "Works on Self Reconfigurable Robots"

I think this research area is really interesting and I run a blog entirely dedicated to it called the flexibility Envelope

You can find allot of interesting information on the Wikipedia page for
Self-Reconfiguring Modular Robotics http://bit.ly/dXi0l

You can find my blog here: www.flexibilityenvelope.com

All my best

@siempre.aprendiendo I know I was totally blown away when I found SRCMR!

oooh m-tran! i recall seeing that a few months ago, this has got to be one of the smartest modulair robot systems i've seen
