This paper provides an overview of the SWARM-BOTS project, a robotics project sponsored by the Future and Emerging Technologies program of the European Commission (IST-2000-31010). We describe the s-bot, a small autonomous robot with self-assembling capabilities that we designed and built within the project. Then we illustrate the cooperative object transport scenario that we chose to use as a test-bed for our robots. Last, we report on results of experiments in which a group of s-bots perform a variety of tasks within the scenario which may require self-assembling, physical cooperation and coordination.
