Just back from the SASO conference banquet, at which awards were handed out... and we won one! Our Proto demo of self-stabilizing robot team formation won the "Best Demonstration" award. We were cited, among other things, for being:
- simple and easy to understand,
- an excellent example of self-adaptation and self-organization, and
- freely available for anybody to download and play with themselves.
Major kudos to Jeff Cleveland and Kyle Usbeck for the work they contributed to building the demo and also to ensuring we had a nice webpage and movie to show it off to best advantage. Go and check it out for yourself!
