Particulars of physical experiments (10 trials each)

  • Photos of initial condition and final condition
  • Assembly of target structures without high inertia agent
    • Assembly of one, two, three, four and five target structure(s)
      • Data to be collected: number of targets and number of incompatible substructures, time for steady state
