Centibots
Centibots
were robots created around 2003 and designed to coordinate in large numbers in order to achieve a single goal, an early example of swarm robotics. The $2.2 million project was sponsored by DARPA

was known for previous work in robotics, in particular Shakey the robot
Shakey the robot
and related research. There were a total of 100 robots, 80 of which were ActivMedia Robotics Amigobots and the remaining 20 were ActivMedia Pioneer 2 AT bots.[4][5] The robots were used to map out an area or locate an object of interest.[4][6][7] References[edit]
