Controlling Agents in Smart Matter with Global Constraints
Bjorn Carlson, Vineet Gupta, Tad Hogg
Smart matter consists of sensors, actuators and computers embedded
in materials to give precise and flexible control over their physical
properties. We describe how global constraints and local agents can be
combined to control the overall behaviors of smart matter in a simple, robust
manner. We present several examples of such systems.
