Vol. 13  No. 9  pp. 70-73


A new concept of a Solar Cell powering with integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) for SWARM (Small World Autonomous Robots for Micro-manipulation) is proposed. The main idea is to use a projector to transfer energy and to provide global positioning information to the robots that are equipped with photodiodes on their top. We project a white image showed a scavenged power of 100 to 200 watts normally tungsten bulbs commercially available in market. Based on the global positioning system, the projector sends regularly a sequence 17 images and the robots decodes them using two photodiodes in order to calculate its own position and orientation inside a defined arena.


Photodiodes, Powering (Normally 100W ? 200Wwatts tungsten bulbs), GPS-Here called EGO-Positioning and Swarm Robotics.
