Michael Allwright Postdoctoral Researcher at IRIDIA

I am Michael Allwright, a postdoctoral research at IRIDIA, the artificial intelligence lab of ULB in Brussels, Belgium. My research focuses on the design and implementation of a swarm robotics construction system where individual robots cooperate to autonomously build structures.

Structure and Markings as Stimuli for Autonomous Construction

This paper was published as part of the conference proceedings for the Eighteenth International Conference on Advanced Robotics, which was held in Hong Kong, China. The article describes the hardware that I have designed for my swarm robotics construction system and demonstrates how stigmergy can be used to facilitate coordinated construction.
