As a contribution to the efforts towards robotic systems of higher
flexibility we present our concept of morphologically dynamic
robots. Within the projects SYMBRION and REPLICATOR, that focus on
modular robotics, we have developed bio-inspired control techniques
to achieve new concepts of dynamic, autonomous morphological
structures. We propose three modes of coupling between robot
modules: swarm, team, and organism mode. We demonstrate our concepts
along with simple robot experiments.
