XinCheJian’s  Swarm Robots

The African Robotics Network threw a $10 Robot Design Challenge and Shanghai hackerspace XinCheJian picked up the gauntlet. Their SwarmRobot project took down second place in the “traditional” category, even beating out MIT’s team! Harvard’s Kilobot won the category. That’s good company, XinCheJian, congrats!

    Hey thanks for the shoutout. We are making some more SwarmRobots today and getting ready for a Maker Carnival next weekend.

    Hope the new version 2 IR object detection shield and code will be fully functioning by then :) A video of the V1 shield avoiding sides of a small box is here:
