Paper, FE No;1:Reusable Electronics and Adaptable Communication
as Implemented in the Odin Modular Robot
By Ricardo Franco Mendoza Garcia, Andreas Lyder, David Johan Christensen and Kasper Stoy
This paper was an interesting read. I think it shows how far the research on SRCMR has come, that we can now start to refine the design.
I think that it is interesting to see that the same concepts that make SRCRMR interesting in the general sense, works in the design of the units themselves as well. It is really interesting how division of general and specific systems and components can keep the flexibility of the development platform and significantly speed up development. It also shows that on one level a real world SRCMR system must be a hybrid between homogeneous and heterogeneous.
There is also a video of the proof-of-concept experiment but I blogged separately about that.
