The Project

The project I will be working on is related to PhD student Elizabeth Jensen's alogorithm for robot dispersion. It uses multiple robots to explore a space in a decentralized and highly scalable manner. Alice Chang and I are working this summer to implement the algorithm on actual robots.

A summary of a version of the algorithm can be found in Elizabeth's paper here: link

Because they are simple and plentiful, we are using the Scribbler robots (with the Fluke attachments) to implement a simplified version of the algorithm.
