Droplets: A Swarm Robotics Platform
The platform has been produced by the Correll Robotics Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder. It is envisioned to be a scalable robotics experimentation environment.
The hardware is comprised of actual robots, and the test bed/floor that experiments are run on. The robots are capable of sensing IR and RGB intensities, actuation using vibration motors, and IR communication. The embedded software layer is what we use to write and compile on-board code for the droplets. Each robot is equipped with an Atmel xmega-128a3u microprocessor capable of running embedded-c.
A simulator has also been developed for this platform. This code has its own repo on github.
