Control and Selforganization for Autonomous Robots

How can distributed or autonomous systems control themselves to function properly? We are developing a novel line of research: Advancing the theory of chaos control we strive to bring it to applications for making autonomous robots more versatile and more self-organized (as opposed to externally controlled).

The Nature video illustrates our first major results:
