Fundamental Technologies for the Multi-Scale Mass-Deployable Cooperative Robots

"Multi-scale mass-deployable cooperative robots are a next-generation robotics paradigm where a large number of robots that vary in size cooperate in a hierarchical fashion to collect information in various environments. While this paradigm can exhibit the effective solution for exploration of the wide area consisting of various types of terrain, its technical maturity is still in its infant stage and many technical hurdles should be resolved to realize this paradigm."  (Choo et al., 2013)

This project was conducted under the Basic Research Laboratory (BRL) Grant from the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology in South Korea (FY2009 - 2012). The project was collaborative work of multiple labs from Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Electrical Engineering at Seoul National University, Korea.

I participated in this project as a research assistant and completed my Master's thesis out of this project.
