Abstract

Distributed Micro Robotic System is a group robotic system, which consists of many micro robots. A mobile robot plays an important role in the distributed micro robotic system. In this paper, we propose two types of the micro mobile robot. One is a micro line trace robot that runs along a black line using a pair of photo-sensor. The another is a micro autonomous robotic system constituted by some micro mobile robots controlled by a simple logic. The micro line trace robot consists of a pair of photo-sensor, a pair of electromagnetic actuator and a programmable logic device, but does not include a battery and the interface between the controller and actuator. The micro mobile robot constituting the micro autonomous robotic system moves toward the direction of high illumination of light, and which includes the battery and interfaces.
