This paper proposes a novel mobile self-reconfigurable robot called Tanbot consisting of several mobile modules. Single module is capable of simple self-reconfiguration by expanding itself. Several modules can dock together one by one to be a whole robot via sensors and cameras. An embedded navigation module is designed to enhance the position accuracy of Tanbot, and to improve the docking efficiency.
