In this article, the concept of a cellular robot that is capable of reconfiguring itself is reviewed. This "self-reconfigurable (SR) robot" exemplifies a new trend in robotics, indeed, we can now build various kinds of SR robots with off-the-shelf technologies of processors, actuators, and sensors. These SR robots, based on modern mechatronics, are still not as adaptable as the liquid metal robot in The Terminator 2 but are just as flexible as any conventional robots.
