Visible to the public Cyber-Physical Manipulation (CPM): Locating, Manipulating, and Retrieving Large Objects with Large Populations of Robots


This project aims to develop the theory and technology for a new frontier in cyber-physical systems: cyber- physical manipulation. The ultimate goal of cyber-physical manipulation is to enable a group of hundreds or thousands of individual robotic agents to collaboratively explore an environment, manipulate objects in that environment, and transport those objects to desired locations.
