Location:  EJ228  (Directions)

   Abstract

Last January, the Centibot project was independently evaluated by a DARPA team. The challenge was the following: In an unknown (never seen and tested before) building, we had to build a map, search for one or more object of value and then track any intruders. This talk will present the story behind the test of 100 robots as well as the technology developed during this project.
