Cellular robot system


A robot system made up of multiple autonomous robots with single functions called cells and dynamically reconfigured.

Cellular robots have autonomous distributivity because they are composed of single-function autonomous robots. Physically coupling them forms a robot system with a variable structure in both a hardware and software sense, and the robots can be structured modularly. In addition, forming a hardware and software network between cells creates a robot system with higher functions and intelligence. Research into the optimum arrangement of knowledge among cells envisages a network containing master cells composed of multiple cells, and research into the optimum organizational arrangement of the master cells is proceeding.
