A Kilobot is a small inexpensive robot, designed by the Self-Organizing Systems Research Group at Harvard University, with features that enable researches to test collective algorithms on hundreds or thousands of robots (called a swarm) without logistical problems such as programming and power cycling consuming an unacceptable amount of time.1. This paper illustrates a tested procedure on how to construct a Kilobot Swarm and programming platform. These procedures were created from a combination of the original Kilobot documents made available by Harvard University2, other materials later released by Harvard3, as well as some additional insight and modifications.
