Low-cost Autonomous Micro-robot for Swarm Robotics
Colias is a low-cost, open-platform, autonomous micro robot which has been developed for swarm robotic applications. Colias employs a circular platform with a diameter of 4 cm. 
It has a maximum speed of 35 cm/s that gives the ability to be used in swarm scenarios very quickly in large arenas. Long-range infrared modules with adjustable output power 
allow the robot to communicate with its direct neighbours from a range of 0.5 cm to 3 m.


The latest version of Colias has been tested successfully
