The s-toy


The s-toy was designed as an accessory for the scenario requirements. Very modular, it can be used as a prey, as well as a landmark to localize the nest. The central turret can be removed and the s-toy can be loaded with extra weight (up to 2kg). Its design can be seen in Figure 1 left.
The s-toy has the same external ring as the s-bot, so that swarm-bots can connect to it. The ring can change color (Figure 1 right), like the s-bots (red, green, blue and various combinations). The central turret has a two different color LED (green and red). The external diameter is 20 cm, the height 30 cm. For localization the s-toy can also emit sound.
