If you've seen the NOVA show that featured the biography of me, then you might have some unanswered questions. My software made an error while processing this file, and the robots would get to a certain point, then wait a very long time to play the next note.
If you do send one, please be patient, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just busy... Disclaimer: The Ant robot design was never meant to be replicated by others, and is not a good example of quality engineering. But, if you're still curious, page 26 of my bachelors thesis has a picture of the chassis for an Ant robot, and the electrical schematic can be found in Appendix A. The students would put food scraps in the worm bins, and the worms would turn it into dirt, a.k.a. The students learned about the life cycle, the food web, and the difference between organic and inorganic. The files tell the robots when to play which note on what instrument.Equipped with bump sensors, a self-charger, a radio modem and an audio system, they are autonomous yet travel in a fleet.When one robot makes a discovery, it signals the group to execute the task together.My only consolation for having an otherwise simple demo fail so miserably on national television was that it was the first time I have been able to overflow a 32-bit unsigned integer. one of my intermediate values was greater than 4,294,967,296!
) This is most certainly one of the rites of passage to becoming a full-fledged computer scientist."Understanding nature is the key to unlocking the secrets of intelligence," said MIT graduate student James Mc Lurkin.
