Self-Reconfiguring Modular Robotics is really two things.
The first part is Modular robotics. This is a branch of robotics that aims to build complex systems with simple components. A bit like Lego, simple pieces are, by cooperating, capable of building complex objects.
The Second part is Self-reorganization to make the units able to move among each other on their own accord and thus reconfigure themselves from one task to another without human intervention. This also allows the system created to be active and dynamic.
This has the most profound consequences and exploring these is the purpose of this blog.
