No robots at the sub-cm3 scale exist because their development faces a number of open challenges. This project focuses on identifying and determining means for solving these challenges. In addition, it is providing new solutions to outstanding questions about resource-constrained algorithms, architectures, and actuators that can be widely leveraged in other applications.
This project will develop the first wireless network of cooperative mobile autonomous robots at a very small scale. In order to achieve this goal, we will face technical and scientific challenges that arise from severe power constraints, space and weight limitations.
