Abstract

M-TRAN is a three dimensional modular robotic system, havingfeatures of lattice-type and chain-type systems; it can self-reconfigure as a lattice-type modular robot, and can make versatile robotic motions as a chain-type modular robot. In this chapter, we discuss its lattice-type features: design principles, metamorphosis by small numbers of modules, and distributed self-reconfiguration by large numbers of modules. Throughout this section, the term "metamorphosis" is used interchangeably with the term "self-reconfiguration".
