Project outline

In this MATLAB program, when the user gave as input an image that contained a black outline of a shape or text, the output was the coordinates that were required in order to recreate the figure with dots or Kilobots in our case (either in simulation or real life). In the software the user was able to define the number of robots he wanted to use and if he wanted the outline to be with a single line or double line of robots.

This software was used to extract the coordinates of some text, that was later recreated by a swarm of Kilobots.
