To make sure the software can be tested on a swarm of quality robots it was best to create our own. To do this first some requirements needed to be set:

  • Robustness: Robots need to break down as minimum as possible.
  • Speed: Robots need to work at reasonable speed but still have enough torque to deal with obstacles etc.
  • Tools: Because the robots need to move object some sort of shovel can be attached.
  • Sensors: Robots need to be able to know where the others are, know where obstacles and objects are and be aware of current speed, acceleration and direction.

Robustness

To make sure the robot is robust a sturdy chassis was chosen on shich tank treads will be attached instead of wheels.
