An Interactive Framework for Reconfiguration in the Sliding Square Model (Media Exposition)

LIPIcs-SoCG-2022-70.pdf (0.8 MB)


We describe SquareSlider, a software framework for visualizing reconfiguration algorithms of modular robots in the sliding square model. In this model, a robot consists of a configuration of squares in a rectangular grid, which can reconfigure through a fixed set of possible moves. SquareSlider is a web-based tool that implements an easy-to-use interface allowing the user to build a configuration, run a reconfiguration algorithm on it, and examine the results.
