RoFI - Metamorphic Distributed Robots
Project website: https://rofi.fi.muni.cz/
RoFI is a platform of modular robots developed at Faculty of Informatics at Masaryk University. The platform is designed for building larger robots (RoFIbots) from a small number of module types.
The modules of the platform can connect together using RoFI dock. Mechanically connected modules can communicate over TCP/IP and share power.
For an in-depth description of the RoFI platform see the related work below.
- RoFI: Distributed Metamorphic Robots - Master's thesis providing the RoFI project overview.
The repository is structured in directories according to components of the project. Each components usually contains two directories: software and hardware. The hardware directory contains CAD drawings of mechanical constructions or electronic circuits. The software directory contains firmware, libraries, etc.
There are following parts of the RoFI project:
- RoFICoM - the self-contained connector mechanism used by modules to connect and form a firm mechanical connection and establish communication and power-sharing lines.
- Universal module - the foundational module of the platform demonstrating the capabilities of the platform.
