    In this article, the concept of a cellular robot that is capable of reconfiguring itself is reviewed. This "self-reconfigurable (SR) robot" exemplifies a new trend in robotics, indeed, we can now build various kinds of SR robots with off-the-shelf technologies of processors, actuators, and sensors. These SR robots, based on modern mechatronics, are still not as adaptable as the liquid metal. The field of self-reconfigurable robots has seen significant progress over the last twenty years, and this book collects and synthesizes existing research previously only available in widely scattered individual papers, offering an accessible guide to the latest information on self-reconfigurable robots for researchers and students interested.

    Self-Reconfigurable Robots Get It Together. Self-reconfigurable robots are a long way from liquid metal T CGI Terminator robots, but still, it's impressive to watch a robot reassemble itself after being kicked apart. See CKbot pull itself together in . of self-reconfigurable robots in general. Keywords- Self-reconfigurable robots,distributed control, behavior selection, distributed collaboration. I. INTRODUCTION A self-reconfigurable system is a special type of complex systems that can autonomously or manually rearrange its software and hardware components and adapt its configuration.

In these researches, the hardware design of the module and the software design of the control algorithms are the central issues. Most of the self-reconfigurable robot systems can be classified by following features (summarized in Table 1). 1. Homogeneity / heterogeneity of module composition 2. Dimension 3.

A comprehensive survey of the growing field of self-reconfigurable robots that discusses the history of the field, design considerations, and control strategies.

Self-reconfigurable robots are constructed of robotic modules that can be connected in many different ways. These modules move in relationship to each other, which allows the robot as a whole to change shape. Modular self-reconfiguring robotic systems or self-reconfigurable modular robots are autonomous kinematic machines with variable conventional actuation, sensing and control typically found in fixed-morphology robots, self-reconfiguring robots are also able to deliberately change their own shape by rearranging the connectivity of their parts, in order to adapt to new.

Thus, a self-reconfigurable robot can first assume the shape of a rolling track to cover distance quickly, then the shape of a snake to explore a narrow space, and finally the shape of a hexapod to carry an artifact back to the starting point.\" \"The field of self-reconfigurable robots has seen significant progress over the last twenty years.

Modular self-reconfigurable robots present wide and unique solutions for growing demands in the domains of space exploration, automation, consumer products, and so forth.

The higher utilization factor and self-healing capabilities are most demanded traits in robotics for real world applications and modular robotics offer better solutions in these perspectives in relation to traditional by: phology robots, or when the nature of tasks cannot by fully determined before the robots are deployed.

Application Areas Given these advantages, where would a modular self-reconfigurable system be used. While the system has the promise of being capable of doing a wide variety of tasks, finding the “killer application” has been somewhat elusive.

Modular self-reconfigurable (MSR) robots are robots composed of a large number of repeated modules that can rearrange their connectednessto form a large variety of structures. An MSR system can change its shape to suit the task, whether it is climbing through a hole, rolling likea hoop, or assembling a complex structure with many arms.

The book fulfills well the purpose stated in the preface: to serve as an introduction to reconfigurable robots especially targeted to students and beginner researchers of the area. The Chapter 1 is a short but sound introduction to the matter with a review of the state of the art of reconfigurable by: 2.
