Abstract

In this paper we present the Ant Intelligent Robot (AIR), a miniature mobile platform designed for swarm robotic research and education. The proposed system has a modular and distributed architecture that provides the necessary versatility, robustness and user accessibility to enable the study of a broad range of applications, while achieving a low cost. We also present a comparison between AIR and other platforms that were recently used in collective experiments.
