Title:

    Tiny dancing robots: Display-based computing for multi-robot control systems

Abstract:


    Computer graphic (CG) images exist only in a display device, and cannot physically interact with the real world, whereas robots have a physical existence that can be controlled by a computer. In this study, we developed robots that behave along with fiducial graphics. This technology can be used to synchronize physical actions based on the graphics shown in the display devices. Figure 1 shows tiny robots controlled by this technique.
