SwARM : let’s make some art !

Hi everyone,

I’m Perceval and I’m glad to present you SwARM : Hackster
It’s a project mostly about emergent choreography based on simple rules applied to several little rolling robots (about 10 or 20). The aim of the project is both artistic and esthetic.
For this project I am happy to work with Paul and Arnaud.

This week we have planned our schedule for all the semester with the PSSC.
We also have determined the main specifications and limits of SwARM :

It consists in several robots rolling and lighting in 256 different colors all synchronized. They will move according to a specific shape (like a circle or an eight for example) or following basics rules (such as : “if you have another robot in front of you, then turn right”) making a kind of dance and emergent patterns.

The robots will be balls of 15cm diameter, rolling thanks to two large wheel around it. They will communicate with the server by radio (maybe with a custom protocol on a free wavelength) which will locate each one with a camera placed above the dance floor.

Talk to you next week, let’s dance !
