The Swarmanoid project is a Future and Emerging
Technologies (FET-OPEN) project funded by the
European Commission. The main scientific
objective of this research project is the design,
implementation and control of a novel distributed
robotic system. The system will be made up of
heterogeneous, dynamically connected, small
autonomous robots. Collectively, these robots
will form what we call a swarmanoid. The
swarmanoid that we intend to build will be
comprised of numerous (about 60) autonomous
robots of three types: eye-bots, handbots, and

The Swarmanoid project is the successor project
to the SWARM-BOTS project, and will build on the
results obtained during the SWARM-BOTS project.
