Author Affiliations +
This paper presents a basic idea of using computer controlled blocks to build an autonomous system of blocks capable of assembling themselves into various configurations. At the beginning, mechanical components are briefly described. The focus of this paper is on the control of a single block, and the interaction between two blocks. Different processes with different circuit diagrams are shown in details. Several pictures are taken under testing condition and indicate the processes and the results.
